Act Now Training Wins IRMS Award

Act Now Training is proud to announce that it has won the Information and Records Management Society (IRMS) Supplier of the year award for 2021.

The awards ceremony took place on Monday night at the IRMS Conference in Birmingham. Act Now was also nominated for two others awards. Congratulations to all the other winners.

Ibrahim Hasan said:

“I would like to thank the IRMS as well as the Act Now team. This award recognises the hard work of our colleagues who are focussed on fantastic customer service as well as our experienced associates who deliver great practical content and go the extra mile for our delegates. We are committed to helping advance the profession and raising the awareness of the importance of Information Rights as a fundamental Human Right; and enable a culture of respect and trust within organisations.” 

The Innovation of the Year award went to Dapian which is a cloud based programme designed to assist those conducting Data Protection Impact Assessments and Information Sharing Agreements. Act Now helped develop Dapian alongside nine organisations from the public and private sector including the IRMS.

Our Advanced Certificate in GDPR Practice has been really well received by experienced GDPR practitioners who want to enhance their skills and knowledge. We have run eight fully booked courses this year with fantastic reviews. We have also launched our very popular UK and EU GDPR Handbooks.

We have exciting plans for 2022. Watch this space!

Act Now Nominated for IRMS Awards

Act Now Training is pleased to announce that it has been nominated for this year’s Information and Records Management Society (IRMS) awards in two categories. 

Each year the IRMS recognises excellence in the field of information management with their prestigious Industry Awards. These highly sought-after awards are presented at a glittering ceremony at the annual Conference following the Gala Dinner.

Act Now has been nominated for the Supplier of the Year award. In 2020, during the Coronavirus Pandemic, we have been at the forefront of helping the IG/DP community stay abreast of developments and rise to the challenges of working from home and continuing to learn. We ran a number of free webinars on a range of topics including cyber security, risk management and the CCPA. 

During the Pandemic, we developed our online courses from the ground up to ensure they provide the same interaction and quality as classroom workshops. Our flagship GDPR Practitioner Certificate course has been redesigned for the online learning environment but still maintains the focus on delegate interaction, engagement and tutor support. Since April 2020, we have run fifteen of these courses all of which have been fully booked. It is probably one of the most popular GDPR certificate courses.

Throughout 2020, Act Now has promoted information law/information governance beyond these shores. We have trained professionals in the financial sector for the NAPCP conference in Las Vegas and launched our US CCPA and Dubai privacy programmes. This has helped raise the profile of our profession.

We have also continued to raise the media profile of Information Governance in 2020. Ibrahim Hasan, director and solicitor, was interviewed twice by the BBC regarding the NHS Test and Trace app. He also worked with the BBC to help ensure that care home records were removed from a site to prevent harm to patients and relatives.  

Act Now has also been nominated for the Innovation of the Year award for our new Advanced Certificate in GDPR Practice. This course is for data protection practitioners who wish to advance their GDPR practice and knowledge. The syllabus has been designed in consultation with experienced data protection practitioners from both the public and private sectors. It consists of a series of challenging masterclasses in which delegates analyse and evaluate thought-provoking case studies designed to help them interpret complex data protection issues. 

This is the only advanced GDPR certificate course on the market and is proving very popular amongst practitioners. Our first three courses are fully booked. More information here.

All IRMS members are eligible to vote in the IRMS awards. The deadline is 2nd April 2021. Vote now for your favourite training company.

Our new UK GDPR Handbook is still available to pre order at a special discounted price.
