Get your team trained in privacy

When was the last time your team trained for privacy? Within the past six months? Less than a year ago? If the answer is longer, open your calendar. Time to place privacy training on the schedule, now.

Privacy training is critical in protecting and defending important information assets. If you trust a person with accessing data, you must demonstrate the ways in which they are expected to care for it. Training also brings better situational awareness. It helps staff prevent accidents from happening, and reinforces the actions they must take to shield the weakest links. Training fills in the gaps: asking to identify samples of sensitive data, why verification is critical for access requests, or the differences between types of consent. Active training, re-enforcement of security controls and a sharper understanding of company expectations brings confidence.
