UC identity theft prevention service

How insightful of UC to offer protection from id theft!  
If it was not for the fact that they shared our personal data to all companies that happen to sell it to make money (e.g. Hitta.se, birthdays.se, rats it.se) with the help of the ‘utgivningsbevis’ this service will not be so critical here in Sweden. 

The new Regulation will make these services that make money from our identity illegal, thank goodness. Although it will take a couple of years to be in effective. 

To read more on utgivningsbevis here in Sweden on this blog search on ‘PUL’. 

Do you have Privacy Champions in your organisation?

Privacy Champions are key to a successful Privacy Program!

If not then you should!

You know that one of the most effective methods to achieve compliance is to get internal buy-in, and with the EU Data Protection Regulation peaking its pretty head around the corner it’s time to get your organisation ready.

 

There are ways to start that is inexpensive and flexible with the use of Privacy Champions. Get them trained in privacy, they will love it!

Privasee, a start-up (I am founder/CEO), has created a simple 10-hour privacy on-boarding training using an online gamification platform, so it’s actually very social and rather fun. And I’m sitting at the back-end with Privasee’s very own legal geek girl to help!

LogisticsThe next course (Privacy & Data Protection – Introduction) starts on 1 December and learners have 1 month to complete 10 hours of study. Each learner earns a ‘Privacy EAGLE’ badge on successful completion (using Mozilla’s OpenBadge backpack).

Cost of the course is €220. More information & flyer can be found here.

David Lacey on the Origins of ISO27k

640_laceyI’ve had the privilege to spend the last couple of days with David Lacey here in Stockholm, who holds the keys to the origins of the ISO27k standard and the Jericho Forum, just to mention a couple.

There have been 4 articles from 2013 written by TripWire (News, Trends, Insights) Newsletter, in which David describes the history. I don’t think they have been distributed as widely as they should have done. So I am going to do my bit here.
