GDPR and Security Awareness Training

GDPR and Security Awareness Training

Why do I need training?

Data protection is important to every business, knowing what data you have and how to protect it keeps your employees safe, your intellectual property and trade secrets from getting into the wrong hands and any personal data you have restricted to only those who have authorisation to see it.

Additionally, many regulations and certifications mandate some form of training for employees and those people who are nominally attached to your organisation. The GDPR, PCI DSS, ISO27001 are just 3 examples.

What does the Training Cover?

Our data protection training explains why data protection is important, and what you need to do to achieve it.

Our training covers requirements for all sensitive and important data, as well as some GDPR specific topics that need to be included.

For example: Your staff should understand how to recognise and deal with requests from data subjects and recognise and respond to incidents concerning personal data.

This is in addition to the more obvious requirements for handling personal data such as keeping a clear desk, using strong passwords, don’t collect more data than you need and remove any data you don’t need.

Our face to face training is delivered at your own premises, or your choice of location, in groups up to 20 delegates. We can also provide this training remotely or alternatively look at our e-Learning Products.

Why choose us?

All courses are developed and delivered by our senior consultants. All of our Senior Consultants have at least 25 years experience working in IT Security, Data Protection and Compliance, including real world experience of delivering audits and guiding clients through to implementation of remedial actions. The practical knowledge gained as a result of working with clients means that our training and advice is pragmatic and relevant.

We deliver our training in a workshop format, so that your staff can ask questions and interact with the presenter, using this format attendees gain a much deeper understanding of the practical application of data protection and security awareness.

Because no two organisations are the same we can tailor the course content to make it relevant to your business.
