How to Thrive in the New Era of Data Privacy - September Education Event

Data has been described as the new oil. It may be more important than that. It’s the lifeblood of the world and its value is inestimable. The Economist recently described data as the “world’s most valuable resource” on its front page. The approach to the security of data is one of the most significant issues facing governments, corporate entities, and individuals. Current circumstances indicate that most organizations will suffer a data breach – whether that’s an external hack or an inside job if steps are not taken to educate employees about the dangers.

Learner Outcomes

  1. Recognize your organization’s current data exposures and the risks linked to data exposure

  2. Identify the safeguards required to protect your data

  3. Understand the GDPR and UK Data Protection Bill
