Who Am I?


Hi, I am Sam Glynn.

Data protection (of which data security is only one element) has become a growing area of concern for many firms. GDPR’s arrival in May 2018 is increasing this concern.

I help my clients gain clarity about what GDPR compliance looks like and how they can become compliant.

I am a member of the International Association of Privacy Practitioners (IAPP) and I am certified as a CIPP/E (Certified Information Privacy Professional/Europe).

I am also a designated member of the Association of Compliance Officers in Ireland (ACOI) and hold a Professional Certificate in Data Protection, attained through ACOI and accredited through the Institute of Banking (IoB) and UCD.

My background is IT.

I worked in the financial services industry for 15 years in various IT and management roles.

In 2012, I started Code in Motion to provide independent IT advice to a variety of clients.

Over time, this advice focused more and more on cybersecurity, helping businesses to reduce the risk and impact of a cyber attack through a combination of technology, process and people.

This led me into the area of data protection, of which IT security is only one element.

With my in-depth knowledge of managing IT risk and data security, coupled with extensive programme management experience, I am well-positioned to translate the myriad requirements of GDPR into specific and pragmatic actions for your business.

For detailed information on my experience and qualifications as well as recommendations from clients, my LinkedIn profile is a good place to start.

To get a better sense of my approach and my advice, take a look at the articles I publish on the blog.

My clients

My clients are in a range of industries – financial services, recruitment specialists, non-profit membership organisations, and B2B businesses.

Confidentiality is important to my clients. This is why I only publish a small list of testimonials online rather than a full client list. I can provide additional client references where necessary.


Staff & Partners

I am the main consultant in Code In Motion.

At times, where complementary skills and expertise are needed, I work in partnership with a small number of trusted experts & consultants.

I do not employ junior staff who would use your business as their training ground.

My experience

15 years in senior IT management roles in financial services industry.

5+ years as an independent IT security and data protection advisor.


My qualifications

CIPP/E (Certified Information Privacy Professional/Europe).

CDPO (Professional Certificate in Data Protection – Association of Compliance Officers in Ireland & UCD).

MSc Technology Management (UCC / UL).

BSc Computer Science (UL). 

Dip Psychology (DBS).
