Employee Awareness – Data Protection
March 2 @ 14:00 - 16:30 SAST
Awareness plays a huge part in any company’s Data Protection strategy. With POPIA (Protection of Personal Information Act) around the corner, you need to be sure all team members are trained on how privacy and cyber security affects the company and themselves. This workshop covers just that, and is a great introduction to privacy for any new or existing team members.
This interactive workshop encourages attendees to participate and actively ask questions surrounding engaging content on data protection. The talk details Ross’ own identity theft, followed by a real-world data security incident, and the principles of data protection laws and regulations. The talk delivers a working knowledge of data protection as well as why it is important that every team member within a company is aware of their responsibilities.
Attendees will learn:
- The effect of Identity Theft on clients
- How easily a data breach can happen
