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

Data Protection & Lifecycle Management CourseThe data protection training 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 concerning data protection.

As individuals, we regularly disclose personal information — for example, our names, photographs, telephone numbers, birth dates, and addresses — while engaging in various everyday activities. Public and private entities collect and process this data for legitimate purposes.

The consequences of 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 yearly, with total losses of more than $50 billion. U.S. firms spend another $50 billion annually on identity theft prevention measures. Firms must take steps to ensure that any personal information remains secure and that their employees understand these safeguards and how to detect and prevent potential threats and ensure data privacy.

This data protection training helps employees focus on basics and can be used by any industry that saves, collects, processes, views, 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 to protect your personal information and ensure that you remain in control. 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 it, and more.

Data Protection Training ensures you protect your data in all its forms while preventing losses, leakage, and breaches.
