The Domino Effect

Description: Find out what happens when your business hasnt updated its processes to accommodate the changes to GDPR?  Find out how a simple email invitation could lead to a chat with (or enforcement action from) the Information Commissioners' Office.

Five months on, Inspired Information Services Limited have examined how SMEs have implemented GDPR, particularly in respect of the requirements of websites and added security, pagespeed and mobile friendly analysis. They will present their findings to the SA Chamber on 4 December and suggest a number of simple actions that can mitigateany immediate risk of falling foul of the ICO.

Speaker Bio

After a 20-year career as a Royal Marines Officer, during which time he completed a degreeand a Masters in the "Design of Information Systems" (from a business perspective) and was admitted to the Institute of Directors and the British Computer Society, Robin entered the Defence Industry. Moving to the Information Security space he organically grew a consulting business from almost zero to £1.2M in 5 years, during which time he was instrumental in defining the Vision and Mission for the Council of Registered Ethical Security Testers and drafting their MOA and getting this trade body off the ground and established.  Choosing to move on at the start of the recession was always going to be interesting, and a couple of years later after a family bereavement lead to a change of focus. He established his own Information Security, Data Protection, Technology and Business Planning consultancy business focused on start-up and SME businesses, covering all aspects from Vision andMission, organisational structures, business plans, definition of appropriate technology,(including web, e-mail and social media) and marketing. He hates accounts and admin! More recently he has established an Event Management Company, Number 300 Ltd, focused onextreme charitable challenge events.

Inspired Information Services Limited focuses on three strands of business:

1. Information Security Consulting, covering Data Protection advice and security testing.
2. Business Information Technology, (we believe a company's technology should support its business strategy, not constrain it. IT should also inform the strategy, yet too often small and medium sizedbusinesses lack the experience or knowledge or engage advisers who wish them to make an investment intechnology - we provide that advice).
3. Strategic Consulting Strategic, Operational and Innovative Thinking are the foundations of our offerings, which include leadership advisory, consulting and operations management.

In light of our observations around websites, website security and GDPR, particularly in the smaller business space, where we see over 95% of sites fail to meet today's expectationsand/or have security vulnerabilities and/or fail to comply with GDPR, we have introduced an SME focused website review covering the key aspects of what a website should "have" today.A comprehensive report is created to allow business owners to work through a list of fixes. It isa fixed price £495 for SA Chamber members (£100 discount). Those after a review of securityvulnerabilities can take advantage of a specific Security test, also £495 (again a £100 discount),whilst those seeking a more comprehensive report, can have both for £895.
