Effectively addressing privacy and data security issues requires an effectively trained workforce.

The need is clear. The risks are considerable. The global patchwork of rules is in a seemingly constant state flux.

Your employees are not only the weakest link in your data defenses, they also pose the biggest risk.  Too many click on “attractive nuisances,” open and forward malicious attachments, share passwords, and lose company-owned property, like smart phones.  Companies face considerable liability for any resulting data breaches and risk losing everything from private personal data to trade secrets. Too few employees are adequately trained and, among those who are, too few recall essential best practices.

Creating a culture of data privacy and cybersecurity — from front-line personal to top executives — is necessary for complying with regulations and maintaining an organization’s integrity.

Join us on Wednesday, Oct. 23 for a session developed for the Privacy+Security Forum by the program’s founders, professors Daniel Solove and Paul Schwartz, for insights from:

Debra Bromson, Associate General Counsel, AAA Club Alliance Inc.

Maggie Gloeckle, Vice President, Privacy & Compliance Counsel, A+E Networks

K Royal, Director, West Region Privacy Consulting, Trust Arc

Ashley Slavik, DPO & Lead Data Counsel, Veeva Systems Inc.

What they will address: 

+ Who “owns” privacy training?
+ What are the pros and cons of role-based vs. general training, in-house vs. external, corporate vs. affiliate?
+ How should “training the trainer” be handled (i.e., training for people in advanced roles, such as privacy champions)?
+ What should be done for reporting, feedback, metrics, etc.?
+ And much more!

Plus answers to your questions.
