Lauri Almond

Business Consultant Information Governance Operations
Essex County Council (Confirmed)

Lauri is the Information Governance Operational Lead for Essex County Council, one of the largest Local Authorities in England.  As with all local authorities, they deliver a wide range of services to their many citizens, and this provides many information governance challenges.  One of the largest challenges is information sharing, which is critical to the successful delivery of services, with so much focus on commissioning and shared delivery to meet demand.  Her proudest development at Essex County Council has been the introduction and development of the Whole Essex Information Sharing Framework.  This is a partnership arrangement administered by Essex County Council, which promotes ethical and secure information sharing, and supports the growth of information maturity to reduce risks and position partners where they can realise the benefits of information sharing fully. Lauri thrives on the constant challenges this busy role provides and working with a great team of IG practitioners.
