Wood for Trees and MyLife Digital Group
Chief Commercial Officer
MyLife Digital has developed the Consentric Platform, Consentric empowers Citizens (directly or via Proxy) to control how an organisation uses their personal data. They can see what data an organisation collects and holds about them, it lets them rectify and delete their data, enables them to see the processing purposes it was originally collected for and lets them amend or add any additional purposes. It also allows the Citizen to agree if their data can be shared with other organisations. This is all managed within a legislation compliant framework supporting the ‘Rights of the Data Subject’ as defined in Articles 15 – 22 of the GDPR. The use cases are therefore applicable to all business sectors that handle Personal Data.
J is an advocate of delivering ‘informed insight from informed consent’ and a champion of the opportunities emerging from GDPR. J has been in demand as a speaker on the subject for both charity and commercial events. J has been recognised as a Data Enabler in the DataIQ Data 100 2018 amongst the most important and influential people in data-driven businesses and the innovators who support them.
