Metacompliance have been working closely with Local Authorities across the UK to enable them to automate and manage the key tasks associated with user awareness and engagement, and mitigate the significant risks to information security presented by the uninformed, unwitting employee. Leading lights in the local authority sector such as Essex Online partnership members Basildon and Chelmsford Councils, Welsh Local authorities Vale of Glamorgan and Merthyr Tydfil, and London Councils such as LB Bexley, have all deployed MetaCompliance to underpin their information governance programmes and deliver on best practice Information Assurance. Anna Kelpie, UK Country manager with Metacompliance, explains the benefits of regional Information Security Forums engaging with companies such asMetacompliance:
"Metacompliance work closely with a wide range of Local Authorities right across the UK, to deliver on an essential component of Information Assurance, user awareness, and this will continue. However, with the growing regulatory burden on government organisations, sometimes the only mechanism for sharing best practice is through forums such as ISfL. It essential that Baronscourt engage with these fora, presenting best practice case studies and encouraging MetaCompliance organisations to share their experiences, to ensure that all local authorities are fully aware of, and have access to, the benefits that deploying MetaCompliance can bring to their IT Assurance programme."
The ISfL 40th Members Forum takes place on Monday 27th July at City Hall. To register your interest, please visit the London Councils website.
