Microsoft is helping the many UK and European organisations, in the financial services and in other industry spaces, to create better efforts to realise sustainability strategies and milestones and achieve Net-Zero.
From Cybertechaccord.com: “Twenty years ago today, the Council of Europe Convention on Cybercrime, commonly known as the ‘Budapest Convention,’ became the first-ever international treaty on cybercrime. In the years since, it has been the leading international instrument supporting cooperation between nations working to combat cybercrime.
The Cybersecurity Tech Accord and its signatories want to express our support and appreciation for the Convention and its objectives and join governments, industry, and civil society organisations worldwide in celebrating the Convention’s anniversary by reflecting on the key role it plays in helping protect our society against cybercrime.”
Queue Associates Worldwide UK, Ltd. has been closely following and implementing solutions surrounding cybersecurity, in partnership, globally, with Microsoft. Queue is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, in numerous competencies including security — and a Microsoft Dynamics 365 Gold Partner — and ISO Certified for the execution and management of security policy. Queue is also a member of and signatory for the Tech Accord–please click on the link below:
This critical information about the Convention — “a truly global instrument over the past 20 years, ratified by 66 governments from across different regions and used by many more as a guideline for domestic cybercrime legislation” — and the Tech Accord and their efforts is highly valuable to Queue’s team for our client and partner initiatives.

The Value of Investing in Privacy Compliance – Jeffrey Goldstein, Queue Associates: Voices for Innovation
Jeffrey Goldstein, Managing Director of Queue Associates UK, Ltd., contributed a blog post to the US organization, Voices for Innovation (VFI) about initiatives that he has undertaken regarding data privacy for the all of the websites for his companies in different geographies.
In the post, Mr. Goldstein stated that “Microsoft partners — and every tech business — should provide strong privacy protections for their customers.” He continued, indicating that, “companies and customers alike would benefit from a single, unified federal data privacy law. But in the absence of that law [in the United States], we’ll benefit if state laws are closely compatible with each other and with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).”
Revelations from Audits of Queue’s Websites
Mr. Goldstein described the project in which Queue Associates invested to ensure data privacy on the three websites for his different international companies. The companies are based in the United Kingdom — the website for which was to be made to adhere strictly to GDPR — in the United States, and Greater China. In this effort, for all of the sites for his different companies, he explained that it “made sense for us to seek outside help, so we contracted with a company called, The Data Privacy Group, Ltd. (DPG). When we first hired DPG, they conducted an audit of our websites and other technology. We were shocked to learn the extent to which we were out of compliance—even though we had not neglected privacy or security.”
Next Steps Towards Compliance
In the complete VFI post, Mr. Goldstein elaborated on the findings of the Data Privacy Group, and the extensive work undertaken by DPG and Queue Associates to follow laws and guidelines for web and data privacy in multiple countries. This effort is also bolstered by Queue’s recent achievement of ISO 27001 certifications. The companies, in each continent, sought to meet international standards on information security through these ISO certifications for their Microsoft Dynamics and other Microsoft-related initiatives for clients in these three geographies.
