As CEO of trust-hub, Simon Loopuit is helping businesses to transform the way they manage their personal data in response to the privacy and digital revolution that’s currently underway.
Personal data relates to real people – whether customers or colleagues. Properly discharging your duty of care for protecting their data rather than treating it as just another compliance obligation will pay real dividends.
Effective data protection requires a collaborative effort based around a shared view of the personal data ecosystem.
Regulatory reporting should be an output rather than an objective of good personal data governance.
Following a distinguished career in the City, Simon is now a successful technology entrepreneur and passionate privacy advocate. As CEO of trust-hub, he has developed an innovative SaaS platform for managing personal data and has won multiple awards in the process.
He views privacy as a strategic opportunity for businesses to demonstrate market leadership rather than a compliance overhead. Simon read law at university before qualifying as a chartered accountant. He is the proud father of two children and in what is left of his spare time, Simon is a keen skier, squash player and a private pilot.
