Why is data protection and privacy awareness training important?
Data protection and privacy awareness training are crucial for several reasons.
To be lawfully compliant
Data protection and privacy regulations (like GDPR, HIPAA, CCPA) are strict laws. Compliance is mandatory in order for organizations to avoid legal and financial penalties.
To understand work in the context of laws
Training enables employees to understand their work and the data they handle in the context of relevant laws and the cost of violations.
To prevent data breaches
Training empowers employees to recognize and report potential cyber risks, incidents and vulnerabilities, thereby increasing the likelihood of mitigating potential security breaches.
Preserve and enhance reputation
Adequate training can lessen the likelihood of incidents while also demonstrating a strong dedication to safeguarding sensitive information.
Avoid post-incident costs
Training reduces post-data breach costs related to the investigation, reputation management, legal costs, fines, and loss of business.
Gain customer trust
Showing dedication to data protection and privacy cultivates customer trust by indicating responsible handling of their personal information.
Recommended training plan
An effective data protection and privacy training plan begins with a deep learning course on the topic, followed by periodic reinforcements. It is also important to collect learner feedback at fixed intervals. Accordingly, Security Quotient has devised a versatile training plan adaptable to short-term or annual models.
Step 1: Deliver Gamified Data Protection Courses.
The program begins by training the target audience via a deep learning gamified course focusing on Data Protection. Clients may choose one or more courses from our portfolio and deploy them directly on their own LMS or via a private learning platform using Security Quotient’s Managed Services.
Step 2: Reinforcement Learning with Micro-Learning
Learning reinforcement is vital in data protection and privacy as it strengthens memory retention of key concepts, deepens understanding of the topics, and ensures effective application in data collection, storage, and transfer. Security Quotient helps organizations deliver continuous reinforcement learning using micro-learning videos, infographic emailers, and games.
Step 3: Learner feedback
It is important to collect learner feedback periodically to check sentiments and acceptance of the program. Security Quotient’s learner feedback surveys quickly collect inputs and help in analyzing important success metrics.
