Data Protection in telecommunications

Interview with Shaun Wilson, Data Protection Officer at Tesco Mobile


In this episode we interview Shaun Wilson, Data Protection Officer at Tesco Mobile, a leading telecommunications company operating throughout Europe.


Data protection is incredibly important in telecommunications, the very nature of their business means the sensitive information that Tesco Mobile handle such as phone numbers, bank account information, date of birth etc needs to be treated correctly. Couple this with a growing consumer awareness of data and concern for what organisations do with it, experts like Shaun are worth their weight in gold to their organisations, and, as he’s a guest on the Pridatect Privacy Insider Podcast, to you too!


Shaun is an experienced DPO and having spent the last few years taking on the different challenges and hurdles, he’s an ideal speaker for this episode,  where he will share best practices, safety measures to put in place, the importance of getting the organisation to adopt a culture of safety first and more.
