“The webinar provides a holistic approach to data privacy, protection and security. Every organization will be obligated to provide appropriate data privacy training and awareness to staff when PIPA becomes operative.

“At only $30 per person, the webinar is also a cost efficient means for individuals to learn about their privacy rights and how to protect themselves from cyber criminals.

“TLC Consulting Specialists also launched their penetration testing service for businesses. Their team of cyber security and data protection experts are passionate about helping organizations stay one step ahead of data breaches and cyber attacks and so are now offering free penetration testing.

Cha’Von Joell, Chief Privacy Officer and co-Chief Executive Officer of the TLC Group, said, “We understand that many smaller organizations in Bermuda do not have the resources to provide specific, in-house PIPA and cyber security training for their teams. However, this is an important requirement within privacy legislation and training helps to implement a culture of security and information privacy.

“We created this time and cost efficient training webinar for individuals and businesses to not only learn about privacy and cyber security in general, but to assist them in meeting their obligations under PIPA.”
