Training and Consultancy in Data Protection, Freedom of Information and Surveillance Law
Data Protection Helpline
The Act Now DP Helpline is designed to supplement your internal expertise by acting as a friendly advisor for you to discuss your Data Protection and Privacy issues and avoid attracting the attention of the Information Commissioner. Our experts will guide you through the relevant sections of the Act and make recommendations about your response to difficult DP situations.

Public authorities are increasingly receiving complex and time consuming Data Protection requests. These involve consideration of a number of Data Protection exemptions as well as relevant Information Commissioner and Information Tribunal decisions. Internal legal departments are often over stretched and dedicated Data Protection practitioners are hard to recruit. External legal advice in this area is very expensive and there are very few experts in this field with real experience of advising the public sector.

The DP helpline is managed by Paul Simpkins who has worked in the public sector for ten years as a Data Protection Officer and is now a director of Act Now Training and one of our main expert trainers.
