Sharing solutions with public sector partners

IG Solutions, Cardiff Council's information governance training service, will be exhibiting at the 2019 Public Sector Solutions Expo in London later this month.


The service delivers high-quality learning solutions for public sector services and is looking to expand its client base by showcasing its expertise at the UK's leading public sector event at Excel on June 25 &26.


Cabinet Member for Finance, Modernisation and Performance, Cllr Chris Weaver, said, "IG Solutions was established to share the extensive knowledge and expertise of Data Protection and Information Governance within our in-house team with public sector partners across the country.


"There can be many pitfalls around data compliance but IG Solutions deliver practical training designed to help organisations overcome any challenges they may face, to  understand their responsibilities to avoid potential fines andreputational damage.


"This is a fantastic opportunity for the team to share best practice and promote the innovative solutions we have developed to help partners comply with the relevant legislation."


As well as providing advice and training to directorates within Cardiff Council, IG Solutions also currently provides data protection and information governance support to schools and higher education establishments.


Adrian Dinsmore, Headteacher of Hawthorn Primary School in Cardiff, said:"The introduction of GDPR has had an impact in the way professional organisations compile and use information.  This can at times appear daunting, not helped by a range of myths around this area. I have found the approach and advice of the team to be both professional and supportive. 


"When required, time was taken to give balanced advice on key areas and reassurance given as to how we were sharing information.  This gave confidence in how to approach sensitive issues."


IG Solutions will be exhibiting at stand E1 at the 2019 Public Sector Solutions Expo.
