This is Megan Kane. She is a GDPR troubleshooter at iCaaS and knows how to manage and navigate the complexities of the regulation.

Kane is one of the founding team, a proud shareholder of the company and has seen it grow from strength to strength.

She is one of the youngest qualified GDPR practitioners in Europe. Her wealth of data security experience provides help and guidance to organisations struggling to overcome the ongoing challenge of GDPR compliance.

By attracting young people to consider careers within the industry, iCaaS is helping to address the worrying cyber security skills shortage. 

She said: “I’m delighted to be part of the iCaaS journey. The company offers a unique product and there is nothing else like it on the market, so it’s a very exciting time to be part of its growth.

“The future looks very bright for the company as it expands its market and there are plans to expand globally in the near future.”

Kane is well-regarded within the industry and is regularly asked to speak at various events including those hosted by Santander, Barclays and Peninsula.

Next month she will be speaking at the prestigious Data Protection Scotland on December 10th at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre.

Nicola Hartland, iCaaS CEO said: “Unlike some of our perceived competitors, we understand the importance of investing in our employees. We make sure that they are fully equipped with the necessary skills, ensuring that they are confident in providing companies with the highest level of customer service and support around GDPR and data compliance issues.”

Despite the regulation being enforced in May last year, there is still confusion and misconceptions surrounding data protection law.

Hartland added: “These questions highlight just how much work some companies have to do to become compliant, let alone continue to be compliant,” said Hartland. “What is key is that these questions are answered accurately by someone who really is a GDPR and data compliance expert.

“Megan is one of our trusted and valued in-house experts who can take away the burden of data compliance from many businesses.

“For so many, data security is way outside of their comfort zone. Many don’t have the time, resource or knowledge to become and importantly, remain compliant.”

Kane is quick to add: “What is so good about iCaaS, is that it really invests in its people so that we can all pursue careers within data protection and add to our growing team of GDPR practitioners. At the same time, we are using our data protection expertise and skills to benefit the company through the delivery of the best possible service to our current and prospective clients.”

The team of experts at iCaaS are continually growing and due to their expanding Virtual Data Protection Officer (vDPO) service, they are proud to offer this service to customers, who know they can rely on the services of the vDPO qualified practitioners when they need it. Our vDPO service removes the burden of hiring a DPO or training someone within your organisation to have the right skills, knowledge and expertise to fulfil the role.

Hartland added: “It is really important that businesses, of all sizes across all sectors, are able to sort the ‘wheat from the chaff’ when selecting the right people to help them overcome the GDPR and data compliance challenges they face,” said Hartland. “By understanding that we place investing in our people at the top of our agenda so that they are all qualified data compliance experts, our clients can be confident that they have partnered with the wheat.”
