Data Privacy & Information Security Training

Information Security and Data Privacy Training

Data privacy and data protection have become front-and-center issues around the world, as individuals demand more control of their personal information, and organizations face greater information security threats and risks. And with more people working remotely, it’s more critical than ever to ensure that employees understand the rules and guidelines for using and protecting data and avoiding costly data breaches.

Data privacy focuses on how personal information is collected and used. Information security focuses on keeping all kinds of nonpublic information and systems safe. The consequences for data breaches, mishandling personal information and violating data privacy laws are serious and can involve fines, damage to an organization’s reputation and loss of customer trust.

Phishing attacks are among the top security risks for organizations. Phishing involves cyber criminals who use different techniques to lure targets into sharing personal or confidential information or downloading malicious software via emails, text messages, phone calls and social media. 

Training employees on how to properly use and protect information and avoid data security threats is a key element of an effective data privacy and information security compliance program. By raising awareness of security policies and guidelines and the importance of asking questions and reporting concerns, training helps keep organizations in compliance with laws and regulations and foster trust among  employees, clients, customers, partners and communities.
