London (PRWEB UK) 6 September 2012
The UK IT Industry Awards organised by the BCS, is one of the largest events of its kind. The judging panel has selected Metacompliance User Awareness and Policy Management Software as a finalist for the following two categories:
- Security Innovation of the Year
- Best Use of Cloud Services
Metacompliance is one of a group of UK based technology innovators, based near City Road in East London, in a cluster of companies around Old Street, commonly known as "Silicon Roundabout”.
Metacompliance software focuses on providing practical technology to assist organisations with the human factor, in both Regulatory Risk Management and Cyber Security at a national level.
The heart of the problem is changing the culture of the organisation and its users, to avoid costly data breaches and to make the workplace more mature in this new regulated world. The Metacompliance software solutions provide a real-world answer to ensure that staff and third parties participate in key compliance activities. These activities could include anything from Policy Management of mandatory policies, to the provision of learning videos to ensure awareness of regulatory responsibilities by staff and contractors.
Speaking on being selected as dual finalist in the UK IT Industry Awards, Metacompliance CEO Robert O’Brien said “We are delighted with this opportunity to showcase our technology to the rest of the industry. We have worked hard to develop software that actually makes compliance easier when it comes to the most important aspect of security - People. This award is all the more important for us, as it is recognition by an independent industry body.”
