New Book On PIPA Personal Information Act

July 23, 2020

The new book – The PIPA – a Practical Guide to the Personal Information Protection Act 2016 — is now available at the Bermuda Bookstore.

A spokesperson said, “Now available at the Bermuda Bookstore, ‘The PIPA – a Practical Guide to the Personal Information Protection Act 2016’, is designed as an informative aid to understanding privacy concepts and the Act. The book is sponsored by Gateway Systems Ltd., a Bermuda local company providing information security services and privacy consulting.

“While working with our clients we would spend time providing background information about privacy and the PIPA in general, so we felt it would be helpful to provide an informative guide about both and make it available to the public as well”, stated John Kyle, Managing Director, Gateway Systems.

“‘The PIPA – a Practical Guide to the Personal Information Act 2016’ was the work of a team of privacy experts. Written in a clear and easily accessible manner, this book provides straightforward practical information. It addresses the rights of individuals, the duties placed on organisations and gives examples.
