Claims Consortium Group’s Head of information security has been appointed a Fellow of Information Privacy (FIP), one of a select group of just 30 fellows in the UK.
The International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) awarded Syed Shah with the fellowship, which is recognised as the gold standard accreditation for information privacy professionals.
Chief Information Officer at Claims Consortium, Steve Grieve, said: “A major consideration for the insurance industry is the safe handling and storage of data. As leaders in the use of technology in the insurance industry, we take information security and data privacy very seriously and work hard to ensure that our processes and systems are at the forefront.
“Syed and the IT team ensure Claims Consortium implements the best security and privacy systems, with the highest standards and compliance. This recognition of Syed is well deserved.”
Syed, Head of Information Security and Privacy at Claims Consortium, added: “Privacy and data protection is an important aspect of insurance claims due to the nature of personal data involved. Data protection regulations are becoming ever more stringent, so it has been imperative that we remain ahead of the curve. I am looking forward to working together with likeminded professionals, continuing to improve information security and data protection across the industry.”
