Focus & Features

Privacy has become a central theme of our times and we, as individual citizens, all have common interest in it. The heart of the matter is that we want the information we share about ourselves- private information that personally identifies us- to remain in good hands.

To become an effective Compliance Officer/ Internal Auditor, the main objectives of this training are as follows:

  • Become familiar with the basic privacy principles, concepts and background
  • Understand why Privacy is important in enforcement activity, incident management and laws and regulations
  • Begin to understand your obligations when processing Personal Information under your control
  • Develop a privacy compliance program for your company to ensure compliance with laws and regulations.

Through team exercises, group discussions, case studies, and lectures, attendees will gain a foundation of knowledge that will allow Compliance Officers and Auditors to properly prepare for and conduct a successful audit. A basic understanding of the roles of risks and internal controls in data privacy will also be stressed, along with interpersonal and team-building skills.\
