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.
