Country Leader, New Zealand, IAPP; Principal and Director

Daimhin Warner is a Principal and Director of Simply Privacy, one of NZ’s leading privacy consultancies, providing privacy advice, strategy and training to business and government, in NZ and around the world. Daimhin is also NZ Country Leader for the International Association of Privacy Professionals, demonstrating his commitment to supporting the privacy profession in NZ.


A senior privacy professional with nearly 20 years' privacy and related experience, Daimhin earned his privacy stripes working with the Office of the Privacy Commissioner for 7 years, ultimately managing the Commissioner's Auckland Investigations Team. In this role, Daimhin advised and assisted two Privacy Commissioners on complaints, inquiries, regulatory, policy and strategic matters, led a team of privacy investigators, and worked hard to build constructive and effective relationships between the Commissioner’s office and regulated agencies. Daimhin then moved to NZ’s largest life insurer, where he created and headed a privacy team and programme, before co-founding Simply Privacy in 2015.


Daimhin loves strategic privacy engagements and reflecting on the big picture (to anyone who will listen, including board directors or conference attendees), but he is also quite comfortable in the detail. Daimhin holds an LLB, an LLM (Hons) in public law, and is a Certified Information Privacy Professional/Europe.
