Being online is personal, but that doesn’t mean it should feel vulnerable. Users and customers should be able to engage with the services they use online easily, safely, and exactly as they are — upstanding citizens, boy-band superfans, and/or frequent purchasers of costumes for small pets. Help your team untangle the many wires of privacy laws with our data privacy training to better understand their roles in handling sensitive information.

Why train teams on Data Privacy?

The more learners understand the expectations for the proper handling of personal data, the better. Countless companies of all shapes and sizes are impacted by improper handling of personal data. Regulators are looking for companies to demonstrate they provide employees with data privacy training on data privacy requirements as a critical part of implementing effective data privacy measures.


Hot, local and fresh!

Much like the latest social media platform, laws are local and ever-changing. With state-specific and international jurisdictions overseeing operations, teams need to understand the basic principles backed by up-to-date research.


Stops along the Red Line

We don’t need the subway to remind us that if we see something, say something. Teams will learn how to spot the red flags and proper handling of violations well before they miss the stop at Safety Station.


Sharing isn’t always caring

Data privacy training isn’t just telling your mom to stop leaving all her passwords in a notebook. Taking the basic principles seriously signals that the company is taking proper steps to avoid the legal and financial risks associated with mishandling data.
