Karen Duffy CIPP/E

Karen is a Senior Legal Counsel – Data Privacy within the Shell group of companies, providing advice and support on data privacy issues including emerging legislation to Shell businesses globally.  Karen qualified as a solicitor in England and Wales in 2001 and has been with Shell since 2005, focusing fully on data privacy since 2013.  She enjoys working with business and legal stakeholders across the group with a focus on translating local legal requirements as well as group wide internal processes into clear pragmatic advice.  With the increased focus on digitalisation, artificial intelligence, Big Data analytics as well as external and internal threats and a more heavily regulated landscape, this is of course an increasing challenge.  As part of that commitment, Karen has designed and delivered a number of data privacy training courses across the Shell group including an online global ‘Data Privacy for Lawyers’ course.
