“Making Privacy & Security Make Business Sense”


Sarah Clarke authors the majority of the content found here. Infospectives began as a blog about security, but quickly evolved to reflect her growing interest in, and eventual transition to, Privacy and Data Protection (you can read about that journey here).

Her background includes a business degree from Edinburgh University, many years in the IT and security trade, and a long history integrating privacy and data protection into information security and more general GRC activity. She supports clients to apply lessons learned to improve the efficiency and maturity of their own governance, risk and compliance activity. She is also an advisory board member for non-profit standards body IASME, an annual guest lecturer in Vendor Security Governance for the IT Governance Masters students at Manchester University, a contributor to the National Cyber Security Centre Cyber First programme to encourage women and girls into security, and a contributor to For Humanity in their AI Audit work. That involves effort to produce a workable baseline for independently auditable control, to minimise risks to individuals. Those potentially impacted by creation and use of AI training data, operational data, and AI outputs. She has also recently taken a keen interest in Wardley Mapping and spoke at the 2020 Wardley Map Camp.

She shares what she’s seen work on this blog, on LinkedIn, and elsewhere in the the trade press. If you would like to know more, why not check out her LinkedIn profile.

As well as working for clients and blogging, she fights for better treatment for Pancreatic Cancer, mainly through Pancreatic Cancer UK. It is a deadly and ignored disease and deserves all the publicity and political attention we can muster.

If there’s something we can help with, please do get in touch. Or maybe see what we’re up to on Twitter (InfospectivesLtd @infospectives & Infospectives @trialbytruth)
