Walkers Bermuda is to launch a six-week free webinar series exploring the topic of the Personal Information Protection Act 2016, known as Pipa.

The interview-style webinars will run each Wednesday, beginning October 7, and will be led by Melanie Fullerton, Walkers’ Regulatory and Risk Advisory group senior associate.

The webinars are designed to help local Bermuda businesses ensure they have the information needed to fully comply with Pipa.

Each week, Ms Fullerton will focus on one particular industry and feature an expert from that field who is active in Bermuda. During the webinars, the legal and regulatory implications and requirements for professionals in the related field will be examined, as well as a review of frequently asked questions.

Among the guest speakers are Nevine Lewis, human resources professional; Kim Wilson, medical industry expert; Shauna MacKenzie, legal consultant to local charities; Suzanne Williams-Charles of the Abir Privacy Task Force; Jamillah Lodge of the Bermuda Economic Development Corporation; and Alexander White, Privacy Commissioner of Bermuda.

Ms Fullerton, who joined Walkers from the Bermuda Monetary Authority’s legal enforcement and policy department in 2019, said: “It’s critical for local businesses and organisations, small and large, to be informed on Pipa and we feel it’s our duty to provide this opportunity to the public so people understand how the regulations may impact them.”

She added: “All are invited to attend.”

The webinar series is free and open to the public. For more information and to register, please visit walkersglobal.com
