Privacy education

Knowledge and awareness at the right level

An education plan

Privacy and data protection are human work. Privacy policy can only be successful if the knowledge is at the right level and employees are aware of risks and procedures. The permanent education of everyone in the organization is therefore essential. It is not without reason that this is prescribed by law. Therefore, your organization cannot do without a well-developed and organization-wide education plan to work on knowledge and awareness.

Knowledge, awareness & demonstrability

A good education plan takes different roles and the corresponding knowledge and awareness levels into account. It may be necessary to periodically hold a training or workshop for someone who frequently works with personal data, while it is sufficient to train someone who works less with personal data via e-learning. Because the law prescribes that permanent education of employees is mandatory, the education plan must also consider how it can be demonstrated that employees have been trained.

“Not documentation, but education is the core of a good privacy and data protection policy. Without knowledge and awareness, all plans are made in vain.”
