Employee Training for Data Protection and How to Protect Privacy and Security of the Consumer & Client Data

The data protection and its privacy and security course is intended to provide employees with an understanding of personal data and information, the background and principles of data protection, the consequences of not adhering to applicable laws and regulations, and employees' responsibilities with respect to data protection.

As individuals, we regularly disclose personal information - for example, our names, photographs, telephone numbers, birth dates and addresses - while engaging in a wide range of everyday activities. Public and private entities collect and process this data for any number of legitimate purposes.

The consequences for failing to protect this data can be very serious. For example, identity theft is a huge problem for consumers and the firms that serve them. In the U.S. alone, seven percent of adults - about 15 million - are victimized each year, with total losses of more than $50 billion. U.S. firms spend another $50 billion a year on identity-theft-prevention measures. Firms must take steps to ensure that any personal information in their possession remains secure, and that their employees understand these safeguards and how to detect and prevent potential threats, as well as ensure data privacy.

This training helps employees to focus on basics and can be used by any industry that saves, collects, processes, view and distributes consumer data.

What is data protection?

Personal data is any information relating to you, whether it relates to your private, professional, or public life. In the online environment, where vast amounts of personal data are shared and transferred around the globe instantaneously, it is increasingly difficult for people to maintain control of their personal information. This is where data protection comes in.

Data protection refers to the practices, safeguards, and binding rules put in place to protect your personal information and ensure that you remain in control of it. In short, you should be able to decide whether or not you want to share some information, who has access to it, for how long, for what reason, and be able to modify some of this information, and more.

Data Protection & Lifecycle Management ensures that you are protecting your data in all its forms while preventing losses, leakage, and breaches.
