IT Governance, a leading authority on data protection, risk management and compliance solutions, is pleased to announce its new partnership with Symphony Ventures, a global services company specialising in intelligent automation.

With the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) placing a range of new data protection obligations on organisations when it comes into force on 25 May 2018, the demand for expertise and innovation in the field is greater than ever.

The partnership between IT Governance and Symphony Ventures is designed to offer GDPR solutions tailored to organisations’ specific compliance needs. This collaboration will provide Symphony Ventures’ clients with comprehensive guidance for a smoother transition to being GDPR-ready.

Alan Calder, founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, said: “We’re delighted to partner with Symphony Ventures and have the opportunity to support global enterprises in achieving and maintaining compliance with the GDPR. The imminent compliance deadline, fines incurred for data breaches and continuously evolving cyber threats mean organisations can no longer risk delaying compliance. Organisations should focus not only on implementing appropriate technical controls and security measures but also on delivering organisation-wide staff awareness to minimise the risk of a data breach resulting from human error and make data processors aware of the threats and risks.”

“Automation presents a significant opportunity for forward-thinking business leaders to overcome the challenges of effectively managing continual compliance,” added Chris Gayner, head of labs at Symphony Ventures. “Rather than hiring an army of data administrators, organizations can use digital solutions that deliver greater accuracy, assurance and reliability. We’re eager to roll out our GDPR initiative and bring our automation expertise and implementation capabilities to bear.”

As a leading provider of GDPR expertise and solutions, IT Governance can support organisations in initiating and maintaining a compliance project through certified GDPR training courses, books, documentation toolkits, staff awareness training, compliance tools and consultancy.
