Regina, Saskatchewan (PRWEB) September 18, 2012
Oct. 16 the Canadian chapter of the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID-Canada) is conducting a half-day workshop that will provide organizations with tools for developing data disposal polices and training currently required by law. The event has the full support of the Saskatchewan Information and Privacy Commissioner’s (IPC) Office and the Saskatchewan Medical Association. Saskatchewan IPC Gary Dickson will frame the importance of such policies and training during his opening comments at the workshop.
In a statement provided, Dickson said, “Improper information disposal is a serious issue and is far too common. Policy development and training are the keys to solving this problem.”
The workshop registration fee, kept low to encourage participation, includes the NAID Information Destruction Policy Development Workbook, a CD of electronic templates and forms to assist in policy development, and a turnkey information destruction training program and DVD. The policy development and training materials are suitable for use in any size organization. During the workshop, NAID-Canada CEO Robert Johnson will familiarize attendees with the use of the programs tools. Johnson is considered one of the world’s leading authorities on information destruction, policy development and employee compliance.
