The Bermuda Chamber of Commerce is to hold a compliance training presentation focusing on the Personal Information Protection Act 2016, which is to come into effect on January 1, 2025.

The lunchtime session on May 29 at Specialty Cinema will be led by Appleby partner Duncan Card.

Registration is open now on the chamber website.

Mr Card’s presentation will explain both the historical origin of Bermuda’s data protection law and why Bermuda’s privacy law, Pipa, predominantly (but not exclusively) follows the structure and content of Canada’s provincial and federal privacy laws.

The fundamental principles of privacy rights protection and administrative prescriptions under Pipa will be summarised, and organisations’ rights to qualified exemptions from the application of Pipa will be discussed.

As well, Mr Card will provide guidance about the profound differences between Pipa’s “policies and measure” and “privacy notices” requirements; the organisations that Pipa applies to; Pipa’s relationship to the Bermuda Monetary Authority’s existing IT and cyber risk regulations; the implications of Pipa for Bermuda and offshore outsourcing transactions; how Pipa provides rights to individuals who may have no connection to Bermuda; and Pipa’s regulatory oversight and overall enforcement regime.

Mr Card, a regular contributor to The Royal Gazette’s Legally Speaking column, is a frequent author, provider of organisation Pipa seminars, and guest conference speaker on privacy law and compliance topics.
