I recently signed a Road to PIPA Intent Statement on behalf of the Cabinet Office. This is our commitment and assurance that the public sector will be compliant on January 1, 2025. I invite other leaders of Bermuda’s organizations to familiarise themselves with the requirements and encourage them to sign a Statement of Intent as well.”
