In response to the requirement to ensure best practice processes surrounding the management of IT Security and Compliance policies, Dentons UKMEA has invested in the MetaCompliance Policy Management and staff communication software system.
Sayid Hussein, IT Manager, Enterprise Services at Dentons UKMEA says:
“At Dentons UKMEA we recognised the need to invest in a policy management solution that would allow us to engage and improve communication without the use of email. With the MetaCompliance software, we are able to confirm that IT staff have read, accepted and fully understood the requirements of our policies and procedures. This is fundamental in the management of our information governance lifecycle.”
Hussein continues: “After carefully assessing all the available options, we decided to invest in the MetaCompliance Advantage suite. The major attraction of the MetaCompliance software is that it simplifies the communication of key messages and policies to our IT staff. We can also test their knowledge of new policies and in the case of an audit, we will have evidence of all communication to staff. Metacompliance's customer service is reliable and has been good whenever we have needed it.
With the Advantage Suite we believe we are taking further steps towards educating our staff to protect our business."
Speaking of Dentons decision to invest in the MetaCompliance Policy Management software, Judith O’Brien, Chief Financial Officer at Metacompliance said: “I am delighted that Dentons has chosen to join the growing number of top legal organisations who are taking steps to address the risk of reputational damage associated with a privacy or compliance breach. By automating the policy lifecycle, Dentons can reduce the burden associated with policy management administration.”

MetaCompliance has a clear vision of making Compliance and IT Security easier for organisations. The software can ensure the active participation of all staff in compliance initiatives such as policies, eLearning, and surveys, thus mitigating the risk of compliance incident and the associated fines. The software can be used to demonstrate that staff understand compliance obligations by being tested with questions. The ability to deliver increased user participation in compliance and IT Security campaigns provides the necessary audit information to generate reports that demonstrate the organisation’s “duty of care” to Regulators.
