The UKs leading independent holistic security consultancy

2018 will see the adoption of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the UK with its increased accountability and level of financial penalty for failure, the implications for UK businesses is clear. Advent IM has long felt that good Data Protection and security hygiene starts at the top of an organisation and needs to be handled strategically. James Morris MP will be visiting Advent IM’s offices and training centre in Halesowen, Birmingham to discuss GDPR and Advent IM’s new training course for senior board members and businesses leaders, designed specifically for director level individuals with little or no cyber security background. This unique course will be delivered by a director and cyber security expert, Mike Gillespie. Having an insight into not only the convoluted world of cyber security but and firm grasp of the challenges it presents to senior board members, Gillespie plans to bring the strategic skills of business leaders to bear on high quality cyber security planning and Data Protection practices to raise the UK game from the top down.
“James Morris has always taken a keen interest in cyber security and digital development in business and recognises the need for the UK to ensure its security posture is robust and that with the interconnected nature of business and the digital life of commerce, small and local businesses can be holding extremely valuable information assets and these need adequate protection through their lifecycle. We are happy to welcome him back and look forward to discussing developments in security as well as the potential impact of GDPR on businesses up both local and global,” said Mike Gillespie.
