Steve Wright

Data Protection & Information Security Officer at John Lewis Partnership



At John Lewis, I am fortunate enough to be in the unique position of reporting directly into the Group Financial Director (CFO), but answerable to the Board and Audit & Risk Committee. This empowers me to ensure that when it comes to data privacy and data security compliance, I can set the strategy, policy, direction and the tone (rate) of change necessary to take this great British icon into its optimal position of leveraging the data it collects, whilst at the same time protecting the rights of our customers and Partners, by ensuring legal and regulatory compliance, delivering and enhancing Privacy and Security capabilities – whilst ensuring Trust and Transparency remains at the heart of our fantastic Brands – Waitrose and John Lewis.
