Oyster IMS drives Information Security with a New Leader

Oyster IMS, the London and Dublin based information management consulting firm have recruited experienced security and data protection professional, David Francis, to head up their new Information Security Consulting practice.

Francis joins as Head of Information Security Consulting from London Insurance Market underwriters Canopius where he occupied many senior roles including Head of Information Governance and Group Data Protection Officer.

Francis commented: “This is a wonderful opportunity to join a growing and well-respected consultancy and to work with an amazing set of public, private and third sector organisations.    Information security has always been my key area of expertise and the new services we are now offering both complement and enhance the long-established governance and data protection practices.  I am looking forward to building a high-quality team of consultants and analysts to help our clients establish a safe and secure environment to support their strategic goals and day-to-day activity.”

Oyster IMS Managing Director Josef Elliott commented: “It’s wonderful to have David on board – we have known him for a long time and he has years of experience of solving client-side problems which will prove invaluable to our new practice.   David holds a range of privacy and security accreditations and will be a natural leader for this new group.  He has dived straight in and is already leading on a number of security assessments and ISO27001 implementation projects for UK and Irish clients.  

As far as the business is concerned, information security is the final piece in the practice we have been putting together and I’m very excited that we are now be able to advise and support our clients across all three major information management disciplines; data protection, information governance and information security.”

Oyster IMS is a consultancy-led information management business delivering expert advice, working with best-of-breed software products, and offering on-going and enduring services to a wide range of organisations in the areas of data protection, information governance and information security.
