“Just wanted to say thanks for all the effort and support you provided last week. If they ever introduce an Olympic event for ploughing through excessive bureaucracy you’d be a dead cert for gold”
Urban IT is delighted to announce that Sam Spiro, the business’s Managing Director, is now a fully accredited GDPR practitioner, certified to ISO 17024. Gaining the qualification illustrates Sam’s commitment to a full understanding of the issues faced by Urban IT’s clients and other small and medium-sized enterprises across the UK.
With the changes to the General Data Protection Regulations coming into force in May of this year, there is a great deal of activity and interest in the subject. But, as Sam pointed out, there are still many areas where the practical application of the legislation is unclear. Consequently, many businesses are confused about their responsibilities.
Sam commented, “Studying for this new qualification has reinforced my existing knowledge of a complex area, but it’s also given me new insights and greater clarity. We’re now in a much stronger position to work with those still trying to understand, and become compliant with the upcoming change.”
Urban IT is already working hard to raise awareness of the GDPR changes and is hosting drop-in sessions at their Daresbury headquarters on the Sci-Tech campus. The business specialises in Managed IT and cybersecurity and welcomes enquiries from any organisation struggling to understand their changing obligations.
