Privacy Ref Offers Two Online Privacy Classes for Businesses

Share Article

Both classes teach businesses how to better protect personal information

A business must define privacy policies and practices, verify that their employees are following the practices and complying with policies, and confirm that third-party service providers are adequately protecting any shared information as well

Privacy Ref (http://www.privacyref.com) today announced it will hold two online classes to help businesses protect their customers’, employees’, and partners’ personal information.

“It is not enough for a business to create a privacy policy and place it on their website,” said Privacy Ref founder Bob Siegel. “A business must define policies and practices, verify that their employees are following the practices and complying with policies, and confirm that third-party service providers are adequately protecting any shared information as well.

“As customer demands and regulatory requirements change, the business’s privacy practices and policies must be reviewed and revised to address these changes.”

The first class is a free webinar on Thursday, May 23, at 1:00 p.m. ET. The webinar, “Kick-starting a Privacy Program,” will cover how businesses can establish a program to address these challenges. (All can register at https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/766484800.)

The second class is Tuesday, May 28, at 1:00 p.m. ET. It is the latest in Privacy Ref’s Roundtable Series, discussing simple techniques for increasing privacy awareness.

“This Roundtable will discuss some simple techniques for raising awareness with your organizations employees,” Siegel said. “After all, ultimately the effectiveness of your privacy program lies in the hands of the staff who need to understand and comply with your policies.”

Privacy Ref Roundtables are virtual, interactive meetings focused on a particular privacy-related topic. Sessions are limited to 10 attendees to ensure opportunities for a high level of participation and interaction for all. Each Roundtable is priced at $99. Special pricing of $79, a 20 percent discount, is available to International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) members. All participants are eligible for 1.0 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits through the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP).
