I hope you enjoy the seminar and that you become more aware of [ICT/email/PPI] laws. Before we continue I’d like to get a better idea of the audience and who is here. Who is a director? How many compliance officers are there? Any risk managers?Security officers?How many CIOs?Any IT Managers?How many IT Governance professionals?Are there any lawyers or legal advisors in the audience?
