About us

Established in 2017

Lighthouse Information IG is relatively young. I created it to help battle some of the GDPR nonsense that exists in the lead up to its implementation date in May 2018. Offering experience, practical advice and a trusting relationship Lighthouse offers to guide you through an often complex and murky information world.

My Goal

At Lighthouse I want to work with clients to meet their needs and where I can turn information and compliance requirements into a positive. I will never offer you something I feel you do not need and I firmly believe in openness and transparency with how I operate. If you get your information right then I know I have served you well.

A little about me

Scott Sammons FIIM AMIRMS NLP.Cert 

I am an experienced practitioner of various UK & EU Information Governance laws and their practical application in various sectors from local government & health through to multinational finance & manufacturing. This includes, in more recent times, leading a large GDPR implementation programme. I have experience overseeing various Cyber Security methodologies like the ISO27001 & PCI DSS framework.

I also currently volunteer for the Information & Records Management Society (IRMS) as one of the senior members of the leadership team as well as sitting on an independent exam board for the Data Protection Practitioner Certificate offered in the UK.  I am lucky enough to be invited to speak at a range of events on a various topics under information governance and via different delivery methods.
