My Data Protection Diary: Hybrid Working

Welcome to the new page of my Data Protection Diary, it will be an interesting session enriched by my enthusiasm to be able to return to an almost normal life.

Hearing about the reopening of bars and restaurants, planning summer holidays and going back to work in the office... excites me! After more than a year, our life will almost return to the way it was before.

And this is precisely the subject of this entry to my diary.

How Covid-19 has changed our habits, what our approach to work will be like in the coming months and how this will affect organisations with regards to their data protection systems.

My Data Protection Diary: “How to Avoid Online Scams”

Welcome back to the new instalment of My Data Protection Diary. I am excited to write this page enjoying the fabulous sunshine over UK at the moment. Soak up the sunshine and start to write new data protection nuggets, this is my mantra for this fascinating topic.

It is nice to be here writing this new page of 'My Data Protection Diary'. Today I'm really happy to share my session with you, reaching a new milestone for me and celebrating my first year in Databasix with you... wow wow it's already been one year!

The idea for the diary was born during a discussion in a weekly marketing meeting between me, Regina and Neil. My first reaction was: oh my God!

My Data Protection Diary: 14 Reasons To Fall In Love With Data.

Hi everyone,

Welcome to the second instalment of my Diary of 2021.

All these posts, to celebrate February 14th, gave me the right inspiration to write my new entry for this month.
