Transforming your training and awareness programmes to promote a positive privacy culture

10:20 - 10:50

Training is often an employee’s first introduction to an organisation, as it sets the tone of the organisation’s expectations. Training is an opportunity to communicate how important each individual’s role is in safeguarding data. A robust training and awareness programme is a key and effective tool for mitigating data processing risks. It is also imperative for the overall information strategy within an organisation to foster a positive privacy mindset. The importance of training is reinforced by the knowledge that a lack of training and awareness increases the likelihood of data breaches and other related data processing errors. This session will explore how you can transform your organisation by developing a robust, accessible, and effective training and awareness programme. An effective programme will improve awareness of the consequences of data processing errors whilst fostering a no-blame culture. An accessible programme will improve engagement and promote a positive privacy culture.
