Metacompliance Managing Director Robert O’Brien was delighted to welcome Age UK to Metacompliance’s growing list of Charities clients, stating:
"The third sector relies heavily on the good will and trust of its donors and volunteers. Charities are becoming increasingly aware of the huge responsibility which comes with holding sensitive customer information; a data breach would have disastrous consequences for a charity's reputation. User awareness is at the core of all information security strategies. Age UK are demonstrating how seriously they take the responsibility of protecting their customer’s data and should be congratulated for adopting a best practice approach to policy compliance and user awareness.
