Act Now is pleased to announce that it has recently won a contract to deliver data protection consultancy services to the Government of Brunei.
Negara Brunei Darussalam, to give Brunei its full name, is a small country located in Southeast Asia. It is surrounded by Malaysia and has two parts physically separated by Malaysia. For those (like us) who have never been to Brunei, here is a quick guide.
Amongst other things, Act Now’s work for the Brunei Government will involve developing a Data Protection Audit manual based on the Data Protection Policy released by the Brunei Government. This will include guidance on DP audit planning, preparation and the use of DP audit templates. In time we hope to be training government officials on the developed Audit Manual and procedure.
Act Now has been delivering information governance consultancy services to the UK public sector for many years. This includes preparing for audits, designing standard documents and policies and carrying out DP and FOI health checks. We have also developed a number of off-the-shelf products.
The Brunei project will be led by Ibrahim Hasan and Tim Turner, well known experts and trainers in this field. Commenting on the award of the contract, Ibrahim Hasan said:
“I am very pleased that our good work in the UK has now been recognised internationally. This project will give us an opportunity to showcase our expertise to an international audience. As more countries enact data protection legislation, we hope to be at the forefront of developing products and services that will enable those working in this field to develop their skills.”
