We offer in-house tailored privacy training on a range of topics.
Our standard privacy awareness program, which is suitable for staff across all roles, is delivered as a half-day interactive session for up to 30 participants at a time. It covers what privacy means and why it matters, an overview of the legislation applying to your organisation, understanding the information life cycle, applying the privacy principles in practice, and preventing and handling privacy complaints. We use engaging case studies and fun activities to promote learning.
In addition to general privacy awareness training suitable for all staff, our specialist seminars and workshops have included topics such as:
- Privacy by Design – strategies for influencing business process design and solution architecture
- Privacy Risk Management – identifying and mitigating privacy risk in project management
- Privacy Impact Assessment – workshops on how to conduct a PIA, and
- Privacy & Research – privacy obligations for researchers, academics and ethics personnel involved in human research ethics approval.
