As Chair of the Wales Fraud Forum, I wanted to thank you and your colleagues from the GDPR Alliance for the very informative and engaging masterclass you presented on readiness for the General Data Protection Regulation. I have seen you present on this subject before, and you avoid the temptation to scare the audience with too much emphasis on regulation and the risk of financial penalties, instead concentrating on the benefits and opportunities of compliance. It was particularly evident that, not only did you have a good grasp of the theoretical aspects, but you were able to cover in detail many of the practical implications for organisations. Delegates went away with a sense of the overall scale of the task ahead, without feeling overwhelmed, and having a clear view of some of the concrete steps they need to take now in order to prepare their workplaces for the new regulations.
