BOSTON, MA, September 5, 2018 – ValidDatum, an emerging provider of consulting and data related services for global companies, recently announced plans for the opening of a new office in London to accommodate rapid growth and leverage the more mature EU Data Privacy professional talent pool. The new London office will be led by ValidDatum’s new EU Managing Director, Chris Morecroft, who is a GDPR specialist and a certified Data Protection Officer (DPO) with deep experience in the Banking and Insurance sectors.
“The decision to expand our presence into the EU was a logical step in our business growth strategy,” said Daryl Crockett, president and CEO. “The EU is well ahead of the US and the rest of the world in the maturity of Data Privacy concepts and compliance. The wider availability of UK professionals skilled in GDPR and Data Privacy concepts is very attractive to our global growth model. When we combine that new EU based customer-facing Data Privacy leadership talent with ValidDatum’s existing global talent pool experienced in data discovery, data mapping and systems implementation, we have a winning combination of resources necessary to assist mid-and large-size companies in the methodical data discovery, documentation and privacy compliance of their data. We believe there is still a lot of opportunity in the EU on GDPR compliance. And with the passage of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and potential for US federal legislation, ValidDatum sees opportunity for significant growth in the services side of the Data Privacy Compliance in North America and Asia.”
