Data Security and Privacy

Privacy and Data Protection Training

Data Protection Training As Part of Your Security Awareness Program

Our data protection course offers vital training for companies doing business in the global economy. Privacy laws around the world dictate the proper handling of personal information by you and the companies you do business with.

Data protection can have significant consequences if you fail to comply with privacy protection restrictions. If companies fail to comply, they could face serious risks, including fines and criminal sanctions. A company’s reputation can suffer significant damage in the aftermath of a security breach. Because of these liabilities, data protection training is critical.

This course teaches the fundamentals and importance of your security awareness program, and maps out for everyone in your organization that good data protection practices are direct results of an individual’s behavior. Our data protection course focuses on key topics, such as security breach basics, due diligence on vendors, data transfers, and others. The course teaches employees about privacy laws through real-life scenarios, case studies, useful links, and practical compliance tips, all to ensure a proper understanding of their responsibilities.
