Rowenna Fielding is an experienced data protection practitioner with almost a decade of experience advising voluntary and commercial organisations. Formerly a specialist in information security management, Rowenna obtained the ISEB Certificate in Data Protection in 2011 and has since then been focused on the practical implementation of data protection law and good practice.
As a data protection enthusiast, Rowenna was Digital Officer for the National Association of Data Protection and Freedom of Information Officers from 2016-2018, and is an active member of the Information and Records Management Society. In 2018, she was awarded the “Captain Compliance” trophy by the ‘Security Serious’ industry awards for her work in bringing data protection to life through blogging and public speaking, and was a nominee for the IRMS’s ‘Information Governance Professional of the Year’ both in 2017 and 2018. Both in her professional capacity and her more irreverent ‘Miss IG Geek’ online persona, Rowenna’s articles, interviews and presentations have been prominent in the data protection landscape for several years.
