DataSolutions are excited to announce that we have become one of the newest partners of the GDPR Awareness Coalition.

The EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is set to be implemented in just over a year at the time of writing. As a result President of Host In Ireland, Garry Connolly has formed the GDPR Awareness Coalition with the goal of making Ireland ready for GDPR.

The GDPR Awareness Coalition is a not-for-profit, fixed-term initiative, established in March 2017, to assist in raising awareness of the data privacy obligations for companies big or small.

Currently the Coalition is expanding rapidly, having grown to over 80 members since being set up at the end of March, varying across numerous industries and organisation sizes. In addition, it was announced recently that Dennis Jennings, Ireland’s only member of the “Internet Hall of Fame,” will serve as a co-chair with Mr. Connolly.

As a member of the Coalition, we would greatly encourage our own channel partners to get involved in the initiative. If you would like to get involved, please do get in touch at
