Data protection – what does great training look like?

Posted on: November 2nd, 2021 by Ginny Hallam

Ensuring all employees receive regular, up-to-date training is key to creating a culture conscious about data compliance and reducing potential data security risks. Below are our thoughts on what a great session looks like:

Set the scene – explain the key data protection principles and their practical impact on a day to day basis. Share tangible examples of breaches/fines hitting the headlines to bring the potential risks to life.

Be specific – tailor your approach to ensure you’re covering the specific risks associated with employees’ roles.

Progressive practices – every business is different but ditching duplicates, saving and shredding, locking devices before leaving, and keeping things clean and tidy are great places to start.

Breaches and access requests – responding quickly and effectively is paramount. Ensuring everyone is familiar with how to identify a data breach and requests for data will help you to react quickly to minimise potential consequences.

Keep it simple – data protection can be daunting! Focus on the key messages and practices you want employees to take away from the session.

Need support rolling out data protection training? We can help – our sessions are engaging, interactive and participatory, focussing on practical and real-world insight to bring the learning to life. Get in touch to find out more.
