Data Privacy Week is a week-long initiative taking place from the 24th – 28th January 2022 acknowledging Data Privacy Day on the 28th. The initiative helps spread awareness about online privacy, whilst educating people on how to manage and safeguard their data and enabling trust on how data is collected and used.  

Automated Intelligence is proud to support data privacy throughout our organisation. We caught up with AI’s Security and Operations Manager, Colin Flack, to discuss how. 

“At Automated Intelligence, we apply a number of policies and procedures throughout our organisation which supports data privacy. These range from implementing data policy frameworks and certifications such as Cyber Essentials Plus which ensures we have appropriate defenses in place to reduce the likelihood of breaches occurring and is a requirement for working with the government sector. Furthermore, we are ISO accredited with ISO 27001 which ensures our IT, contracts, policies and procedures are fully compliant. Additionally, we have PCI DSS accreditation on our AI.DATALIFT service to ensure any potential cardholder data remains secure. 

Internally, our staff use the Microsoft 365 suite where we ensure policies are implemented over confidential and important information to reduce data loss prevention. We also deliver monthly security awareness training through a series of online training modules and execute internal Phishing campaigns to identify if staff are wary of phishing emails they could receive.”
