Walkers and The TLC Group host free PIPA webinar

Walkers and The TLC Group are holding a free webinar for businesses on Thursday 20 April on the latest updates to the Personal Information Protection Act 2016 (PIPA).

The session is an important reminder to the business community of the importance of navigating the PIPA legislation and will provide essential information on the relevant policies, privacy notices and good governance.

Melanie Fullerton, senior counsel at Walkers, and Taheera Lovell, co-founder and chief executive officer of The TLC Group, will provide an overview of PIPA and discuss the key documents that need to be prepared. They will guide attendees on how to complete and review the documentation to help ensure businesses comply with the legal and regulatory requirements.

The webinar, which is free and open to all, will address the development of data privacy and protection policies and procedures as well as the required privacy notice. It will provide clarity on the differences between the two documents, and the different approaches that can be taken when organisations are developing these documents. It will also cover the respective roles of the board of directors and the data privacy officer in relation to PIPA.

Melanie Fullerton of Walkers says: "We want attendees to take away a robust understanding of the legal basis for developing data privacy policies and procedures as well as a privacy notice for their business, and also the importance of ensuring these documents are tailored to their organisation. This is equally important for businesses developing standalone data privacy frameworks and those seeking to integrate the Bermuda entity into their wider global data privacy framework."
