About Craig Parsons

Data Protection - It's a Passion, but not a profit killer!

Having worked with some amazing "blue-chip" companies on industrial information security (Jaguar Land Rover, Pilkington) and then some very high profile marketing campaigns (Sainsbury's Active Kids, Nespresso, Compare The Market) looking after customer data it was always clear to me that there is a huge value in people's data... but the smart people will make sure it's looked after and those whose data it is know what's happening. 

Data from 100 engaged customers is more valuable and profitable than data on 1,000,000 people who have no idea who you are or why you've got their data.

If you look after your customer, prospect and employee data, and make sure you're safe and secure, then you'll outstrip the competition and become the trusted supplier people want.  Don't believe me... just look what happend to TalkTak!

Certifications

Out of the 15 years I've spent working in I.T. with a focus on delivering secure, reliable systems which use data accurately I've come away with a few certifications and helped numerous companies achieve some widely regarded standards. 

I'm a Chartered IT Professional with the BCS - The Chartered Institute for IT, and I've got a number of Information Security and GDPR qualifications too.  I've helped organisations achieve everything from Cyber Essentials, to PCI-DSS, and on to ISO27001 (the gold standard for Information Security)..
