CEO of the Global Cyber Academy, Richard Bingley commented: “Carolyn’s practical experience and expertise, coupled with her infectious positivity regarding the benefits organisations can derive from having the right cyber resilience, data protection and privacy, makes her the ideal GDPR Ambassador for the Global Cyber Academy.”

Carolyn Harrison said: “Assured Clarity has helped many small businesses, trade bodies and other large organisations to not only chart a course to GDPR compliance but also reap the rewards of doing so. Assured Clarity wants to raise awareness through educating and that’s why this is such a good fit, as the demand for better skills within organisations can be met by the wide range of online courses provided by the Global Cyber Academy.”
