Midshore have developed an awareness training solution
suitable for all members of staff of any ability, the aim of the
training is to give you a basic understanding of data protection laws in
Guernsey and the upcoming changes.
Whilst the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been pending its implementation date (May 25th 2018) since April 2016, awareness has struggled to spread throughout most industries within the island of its own law the General Data Protection (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law, 2017.
Our training aims to help bridge that gap and give you the basic understanding required.
The first and only of its kind (to cover the Guernsey implementation)

It has been a busy few months for Midshore Consulting, and we would like to take the opportunity to share with you some of our achievements and appointments.
FinTech Awards & GFSC’s Soundbox Sprint
Firstly, in the FinTech Awards given by Wealth & Finance International, Midshore have won “Best Fintech Consultancy 2018 – Channel Islands”. These awards showcase the talents of those who have played a vital role in shaping the Fintech industry, in our case moving to integrate reg-tech into our consultancy work – an area that has historically been purely people-driven.
Secondly, and more importantly in the local environment, we competed in the Guernsey Financial Services Commission’s Soundbox Sprint on Friday 22nd June. Against some serious competition from some much bigger firms we took home the Silver Bailiwick Innovation Award following our pitch to the judges for our solution to using technology to improve innovation. Our solution involved optical character recognition, artificial intelligence and application programming interfaces in a new application that would be an overlay to legacy systems.
Bill Green Award for Entrepreneurial Spirit
Following nomination by the Past President of the Young Business Group, we were shortlisted and invited to give a short presentation to the Bill Green Award judging panel. The winner was announced at the YBG Ball on 30th June, and whilst we didn’t win (congratulations to the School of Popular Music) it was an honour to be a finalist for this award.
New Committee Positions for Christopher
In May 2018, following his re-election as Vice-Chairman of the Guernsey Investment Fund Association (GIFA) the previous month, Christopher was selected to be one of the GIFA representatives on the Council of the Guernsey International Business Association (GIBA). Furthermore, last week Christopher became the Vice-President of the Guernsey Branch of the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment.
Midshore Moving Forward
Remaining in key positions within the financial services sector is key to Midshore’s positioning as a leading innovative consultancy. We have access to the right people, and can marry this level of access to our unique team composition to bring a technological approach to compliance and anti-money laundering. One of our key goals is to use technology to reduce the cost of compliance and assist Guernsey financial services businesses with being more competitive in today’s international market.
