Nymity to Open European Headquarters in London, UK

TORONTO, July 20, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nymity, the leading global research company specializing in accountability, risk, and compliance solutions for the privacy office, is excited to announce that it will open a new European headquarters in London, UK. The European expansion is in direct response to Nymity's large customer base in the EU and the growing demand for innovative solutions to help companies comply with evolving privacy and data protection laws worldwide. A leader in the European market, Nymity provides software solutions to help organizations comply with privacy laws, manage Binding Corporate Rules (BCR), and prepare for upcoming changes such as the proposed EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

To support the expansion, Lauren Reid will now assume the role of Director of EU Privacy Solutions at Nymity, having worked for Nymity for over two years at its corporate headquarters in Toronto, she will transfer to London in August to head the European operations. "I am excited for the opportunity to be on the ground in Europe during what promises to be an eventful Fall, with the EU Regulation just around the corner and evolving expectations for the privacy office", said Lauren. Lauren has extensive European data protection experience, having worked in the UK, Netherlands, Belgium, and France. During her time as Nymity's Director of Accountability Management Solutions, she has led the implementation of the Nymity Attestor™ solution for a number of global organizations, many focused on BCR and GDPR Readiness. Lauren looks forward to returning to Europe; prior to joining Nymity in Toronto, she was part of KPMG's Global Privacy Centre of Excellence in the Netherlands and frequently led engagements for UK clients as well.

"With a large number of customers in the EU we are very happy we have this opportunity to open a London office to further our commitment to EU data protection compliance and accountability," said Terry McQuay, President, Nymity Inc.

Nymity's expansion into Europe coincides with the launch of the free workshop series entitled, "Getting to Accountability: Maximizing Your Privacy Management Program." In 11 cities across Europe and 34 cities across the globe, Nymity's team of privacy and data protection experts will lead hands-on workshops designed to help privacy officers leverage their available resources and to communicate the business case to justify an investment in additional resources.

Nymity's long-term commitment to furthering data privacy management and accountability best practices began in 2002, when Nymity began its research to help organizations implement and maintain effective privacy management programs. In 2009, Nymity expanded its research to help organizations demonstrate accountability and compliance. Today, Nymity makes a wide variety of free tools and resources available to support the global privacy community, including the recently announced privacy management workshops.

Nymity's suite of subscription-based software solutions for the privacy office includes Nymity Attestor™, Nymity LawTables™, Nymity Research™, Nymity Templates™, Nymity Benchmarks™, and Nymity MoFoNotes®.
