Act Now is delighted to announce that we will be exhibiting at the PrivSec London conference on the 4th and 5th of February 2020.

This conference will bring together privacy and security professionals from around the globe to address industry issues, challenges and opportunities. It will explore the inextricable link between data privacy and data security, providing attendees with access to first-rate content presented by a line-up of international experts. The five theatres at the event will feature talks on Data Protection, GDPR, privacy, security, governance and risk management.

We have 7 free delegate places to give away (worth £474 each).

If you would like a place, please get in touch using the contact form on our website. We will add your name to the draw which will take place on Tuesday 7th January at 11am. The winners will be announced shortly afterwards on our blog.

Act Now is in full conference mode at present. On 10th December our team were at DIGIT’s 3rd annual Data Protection Summit billed as “Scotland’s largest Data Protection and Privacy event for business”. The programme contextualised the changing Data Protection landscape, considering the business impact of the GDPR and DPA 2018 and how it is shaping policy and process in practice. The conference is run with assistance from the ICO, ScotlandIS and DMA. The conference was a huge success and our GDPR E-LEARNING stole the show. Follow this link to see a short demo.

In April, Ibrahim Hasan will travel to Las Vegas to address the 21st Annual NAPCP Commercial Card and Payment Conference. Ibrahim will be talking about the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) which comes into force on 1st January 2020. It is sometimes known as the US equivalent of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and provides broader rights to consumers and stricter compliance requirements for businesses than any other state or federal privacy law.

If you are attending any of these conferences, come and say hello (and pick up a freebie!)

Act Now is pleased to announce the launch of its new e-learning course, GDPR Essentials.

Click on the video below to see a short demo trailer.

 

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires all organisations to ensure that their employees are aware of their role in protecting personal data. How to do this without them spending valuable time away from the office or overspending the training budget?

GDPR Essentials is a new e learning course from Act Now Training designed to teach those working on the frontline essential GDPR knowledge in an engaging, fun and interactive way. In less than one hour employees will learn about the key provisions of GDPR and how to keep personal data safe.

GDPR Essentials contains two modules each followed by a quiz. The modules consist of an animated video, narrated by a professional voiceover artist, and contain questions to test employees’ understanding during the learning process.

The target audience for GDPR Essentials is frontline employees, both in the public and private sector, and those who handle personal data on a day-to-day basis who need a basic knowledge of how to comply with GDPR in their role.

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of GDPR Essentials employees will

  • Understand the importance of complying with GDPR and the consequences of not doing so
