Recently, our team had the privilege of welcoming Orlagh Kelly and Caroline Boyle from Briefed, the GDPR compliance specialists’ to AMI.
Orlagh Kelly is the go-to-Barrister for all things GDPR, With a unique ability to interpret how GDPR legislation impacts on organisations, Orlagh has earned the title of GDPR Guru. Demand for her data protection expertise led to the creation of Briefed and its unique portfolio of GDPR training products and services. Caroline Boyle, a senior legal consultant with more than 15 years’ experience in governance and compliance, delivers GDPR training and consultancy projects with clients in sectors including education, charity, construction, financial services, and legal.
Philip McMichael, Chief Executive at AMI and Faye Thomas, Chief Commercial Officer, guided the Briefed GDPR specialists on a tour of our secure processing facility and data erasure lab, to show the levels of security undertaken by AMI when destroying data and recycling our clients’ retired IT equipment.
Orlagh said, “When Faye invited us along to see AMI’s facilities for ourselves, we were delighted for an opportunity to see the theory of GDPR put into action. We were highly impressed with the security, efficiency and effectiveness of their system; we even put them to the test bringing along one of our own hard-drives for secure shredding! It was reassuring to see professionals at work who take data security so seriously. Their system of checks and balances is highly impressive and working in the data protection field ourselves; it was both heartening to meet with colleagues who have a real understanding of GDPR and the implications for their customers.”
