Act Now Launches GDPR Helpline

Classic dial phone

Act Now Training is pleased to announce the launch of its GDPR Helpline.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a complicated piece of legislation not helped by the fact that it has to be read alongside the Data Protection Bill (currently making its way through Parliament) as well as other legislation. Internal legal departments are often over stretched and dedicated Data Protection practitioners are hard to recruit. External legal advice in this area is very expensive and there are few experts in this field with real experience of advising the public sector.

The Act Now GDPR helpline is designed to supplement organisations’ internal DP expertise by acting as a friendly advisor/sounding board for discussing GDPR and data protection issues/requests and helping to avoid attracting the attention of the Information Commissioner. Our data protection experts will guide callers through the relevant legal provisions and make recommendations about how to handle difficult data protection situations.

Ibrahim Hasan, a solicitor and director of Act Now Training, who has 20 years experience of advising and training the public sector, manages the GDPR helpline. It builds on the success of our DPA helpline, which ran for many years and counted a number or local authorities and government agencies amongst its subscribers. More details, including terms and conditions, here.

Act now has also re launched its popular FOI/EIR helpline, which guides subscribers through the maze of information access legislation including the Freedom of Information Act and the Environmental Information Regulations.
