With cybersecurity and data privacy firmly in the headlines, members of the Housing Security and Privacy Forum met for their second conference in March 2016. Founded by Adrian Leung, head of information security at Catalyst Housing Group, the forum aims to share information and enable its members to discuss common challenges and work collaboratively to address them.
Hosted by Peabody at its offices in London, the conference was attended by over 40 delegates from 31 housing providers and the topics discussed ranged from cloud security to the new data protection regulations.
Audrey Olden, information governance manager, First Wessex said, “Still being fairly new to the sector and with the world of data protection changing dramatically, it is very helpful to work with peers because we all have the same objectives.”
The Housing Security and Privacy Forum is open to anyone in the housing sector who has a responsibility for information security and data privacy. To join and get involved, go to LinkedIn (www.linkedin.com/groups/8320754) where the group has a thriving online presence.
