Welcome to the Eurocomply blog. We’ve been meaning to do this for a while. As you may know from various social media channels, we operate in the Data Protection space. Here you will find our best attempts at thought-leadership regarding GDPR, ePrivacy and associated topics, as well as news about what we are getting up to as a team. This is a place where we voice our views on legislation and guidance as it is released and our approach on how to go about implementing it as a business. We’re a company run by lawyers, but don’t hold that against us. We are pragmatic, to the point and probably best described as ‘your friendly neighbourhood privacy specialists’. We detest fear-mongering so on this blog you will not find any statements like:
Comply or be fined!
If you don’t have consent, processing is illegal under GDPR!
We are also not GDPR-bandwagon hoppers as we like to call them. Emerald founded Eurocomply after writing her master thesis on it back in 2012-2013 and as a result, we have been working in this space for over 5 years. Also, data protection is so much broader than the GDPR and it is a common mistake to believe that privacy laws are novel.
As a Regtech-enabled consultancy team, with a female leadership team, we spend our time engaging with our clients and speaking at events and other common business activities. However, we are also active in Brussels and spend time engaging with the European Parliament, the US Mission to the EU and the European Young Innovators forum to make the European entrepreneurial ecosystem more efficient, especially for female leaders.
We look forward to engaging with you here and a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us over the past few years especially: Enterprise Ireland, NDRC, Bloomberg Law, EYIF, The Sunday Business Post, Irish Independent, Bank of Ireland, Accenture, and all you cool people on Linkedin and the TwitterSphere. You have done so much in terms of helping raise privacy awareness so thank you.
Last but not least., we enjoy a good rant from time to time when we come across # Fakenews regarding privacy, also known as #GDPRRubbish in colloquial terms, so if you do decide to subscribe: brace yourself!
We look forward to engaging with you, so comments are open.
