PrivaTech Consulting is making privacy training a top priority. PrivaTech’s clients are quickly realizing that privacy training is a sound business investment.
PrivaTech has designed a privacy training program for privacy officers and senior executives to assist them in:
- understanding the implications of recent privacy commissioner decisions;
- overseeing an effective privacy impact assessment based on generally accepted privacy principles; and
- developing privacy risk management plans.
PrivaTech has also redesigned its employee privacy training programs to build privacy awareness. Most privacy breaches involving the loss, misuse, unauthorized access or unauthorized disclosure of personal information are due to employee mistakes. Employee mistakes can be costly…but they are avoidable. PrivaTech’s privacy workshops and seminars give employees a clear understanding of their responsibilities through department specific training, practical tips and case studies that employees can relate to.
“PrivaTech took the time to truly understand our business before launching a multi-level privacy training program within our company, involving senior executives, department managers and front line staff. The results were spectacular – employees are empowered with the ability to make informed decisions that better protect the sensitive personal information we hold”, says Louise Turgeon, Privacy Officer and CFO of ESI Canada Inc. “After the first round of training, privacy issues were being identified and brought to the forefront before they resulted in bigger problems, reducing our cost of doing business.”
“Every organization is at a different stage with respect to their privacy compliance initiatives. Our goal is to develop a culture of privacy within the organization so risks can be quickly identified and managed”, says Fazila Nurani, founder of PrivaTech Consulting.
