Firesand is delighted to announce that we are now a Gold Member of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), the world’s largest global information Privacy community.

This comes just a short time after the recent award of the IAPP’s Fellow of Information Privacy (FIP) designation to our Director Chris Blake, and both events signal our ongoing commitment to engage ever more closely with the IAPP, to constantly grow knowledge around an area that - with the advent of GDPR in particular - is now so critical to customers’ needs.

Our Gold Member status gives us enhanced access to IAPP training and learning events and we, in turn, will contribute expertise wherever we can assist the conversations being had by the Association’s members.

Firesand founder and Director Matthew Holloway commented: “The IAPP counts some of the world’s biggest corporate names amongst its members, including Deloitte, Google and KPMG, so it’s a forum we’re very proud to be a part of.”
