The need for a corporate GDPR, Data Privacy and Cybersecurity training and awareness program
We have developed a Champion/Protector/Promoter program to address the increased focus on Data Privacy, Data Protection, and Cyber-awareness. Training and awareness are among the most potent weapons and defence in a business’s arsenal regarding safety, resilience, and protection. The Promoter can develop privacy and the security-savvy team as experience recognises that a Promoter is a champion to teach the team in Data Protection, data privacy and cybersecurity
According to a global survey from the Vlerick Business School in Belgium, worldwide spending on cyber defence products and services will exceed $1trn until 2021. By comparison, the GDPR of Africa’s entire content (56 countries) is $2.6 trillion.
Investment in technology is not enough
Excluding the significant fines to Facebook, Google etc., the average ‘normal’ fine non-compliance is in access of 300.000 Euro for the six main areas of GDPR. Despite the considerable expenditure, there is a substantial and exponential increase in GDPR non-compliance and cyber-incidents over the previous year. This is a clear sign that all the investment in technology is not enough, and the need to invest in people, training and awareness is huge. It still stands as a shining example of why having a comprehensive, joined-up security strategy is so important – and what can go wrong when not all employees are making the right security choices.
The e-compliance Academy has created three training modules so that companies have specialist GDPR, Data Privacy, Data Protection, IT, Data and Security employees to provide on-the-job training, awareness session with examples and expertise so that all employees in all units are well rounded the basics of Privacy, IT and Cybersecurity.
