Customized Privacy Training     

Privacy professionals spend countless hours reviewing laws and regulations to make sure the policies and procedures keep their organizations compliant. Once the research is completed, the next step is to share this information with their employees.

While the market offers several products to train your team on privacy concepts, they do not allow for tailoring the content to include your business policies and procedures. Cookie-cutter privacy training just doesn’t work.

Privacy Ref’s customized training covers all the need-to-know fundamentals plus regulatory and legal content. Then we personalize these topics to align with your organization’s policies and procedures. Depending on your organization’s needs, Privacy Ref’s training may be instructor-led, computer-based, or a live webinar.

Privacy Ref provides on-site training for organizations both large and small.  We can help your current team to stay up to date on the most current policies and best practices, keeping your privacy program at its best.  It is important to note that having a well-trained staff reduces the chances of breaches due to internal error drastically.
