Win Hearts and Minds on Data Privacy

Win Hearts and Minds on Data Privacy

The Compliance Space, the online data management and GDPR alignment platform, has partnered with the Arena for Data Protection Professionals (ADPP) for a series of events on best practice in data protection and compliance, kicking off with a virtual panel discussion on Thursday 19th March.

Top of the agenda at the event will be how DPOs can better engage their organisations with GDPR, so it becomes a positive part of their business’ culture, rather than an operational burden. Attendees to the webinar will be able to share their experiences and put their questions to a panel of experts, which includes co-founder of The Compliance Space, Paul Saunders.

The Arena for Data Protection Professionals is a peer-to-peer community where support is available for anyone dealing with data including, DPOs, heads of compliance, CTOs, CISOs, marketing professionals and CIOs. Commenting on the partnership, Paul Saunders from The Compliance Space, said:

“ADPP is a great initiative and a much-needed resource to support DPOs in the practical day-to-day implementation of the regulation. We are proud to be involved and enthusiastic to share our experience and learn from others to help shape our ever-growing community."

“It’s almost two years since the implementation of GDPR and it is fair to say that a certain amount of apathy towards the regulation has set in across many organisations.  For many, the perception is that it is something that ‘stops them doing their jobs’. That is one of the main reasons why we developed The Compliance Space – to simplify the process so users don’t just see GDPR as an administrative burden." 

“With several years’ experience advising businesses on GDPR alignment, we have noticed that those with a positive approach to data protection, that ensure it becomes embedded in company culture, are the most successful when it comes to winning the hearts and minds of their colleagues.”

Penny Heyes, manager at the ADPP, comments:

“The 2020s have been heralded as the ‘decade of data’, with an increased scrutiny on data integrity and trust.  However, despite the importance data protection compliance, we found that many DPOs and heads of compliance were often working in isolation.  The ADPP is designed to provide a community to share best practice on GDPR and other compliance issues, so data professionals can learn from each other, and improve engagement in their own organisations."

“As an innovator in the GDPR space, it’s great we have The Compliance Space on board as a supporter and speaker at this virtual conference and future events.”
