After you complete this course, you will be able to:
- Explain what a data privacy plan will include
- Know the important terminology and legislation regarding data privacy
- Map the flow of data in an organization visually
- Understand and write an information request procedure
- Develop an internal data handling procedure
- Understand and write a data security policy
- Understand and write a personal data protection policy
- Develop a data breach procedure
- Decide on training solutions for data privacy
- Know the other necessary pieces of the data privacy plan
- Help your organization write, implement, and review a data privacy plan
You will spend the first part of the day getting to know participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop. Students will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.
Writing a Data Privacy Plan
A data privacy plan is the best way for an organization to document and enforce the privacy of the personal information they hold. The data privacy plan is comprised of a series of policies and procedures that govern the privacy practices within an organization. In this session, students will learn about the elements of a data privacy plan.
A general understand of data privacy principles and law is needed to effectively create data privacy policies. Here, we cover some data privacy terminology, and the GDPR regulation.
Before you can start creating privacy procedures and policies, you need to understand the flow of data within your organization. A data map is a clear, visual way to represent this information. This lesson goes over how to create an effective data map.
Information Request Procedure
When an individual contacts your organization in relation to their personal information, it is important to have an effective process to respond to these requests in a timely way. In this lesson we will develop a general information request procedure and learn about the details required for a complete information request procedure.
Internal Data Procedures
The data handled by an organization should be governed by a set of internal rules. Data must be kept accurate, retained on a schedule, and properly deleted when appropriate. There also needs to be a process in place to monitor the implementation of these procedures by employees. In this lesson students will develop a set of internal data procedures.
Data Security Policy
Good data security is essential, both on an organizational and day-to-day operational level, to protect personal data. It is important to have a variety of security safeguards in place and documented. In this session we will consider the security measures in place at your organization and develop a data security policy.
Personal Data Protection Policy
The cornerstone document of the data privacy plan is the data protection policy, which outlines general staff guidelines around data privacy, proper data storage expectations, and specific responsibilities for privacy. Students will learn about the contents of a personal data protection policy, and develop their own.
Data Breach Procedure
A data breach is an unlikely, but serious occurrence. A procedure should be in place to ensure a structured and appropriate response to such an incident. Students will write a data breach procedure.
An effective training program will ensure that each employee in an organization receives the information they need to maintain proper data privacy within the scope of their work. Learners will brainstorm privacy training topics, and develop potential training methods for their workplace.
Other Necessary Pieces
The data privacy plan also requires supporting documents including Data Processing Agreements/Addenda (DPAs), Data Processing Impact Assessments (DPIAs), and contact information for the appropriate supervising authorities. In this final lesson, additional pieces to the data privacy plan including DPAs, DPIAs, and the supervising authorities are covered.
In Person Training
The traditional classroom style of training remains our Most Popular and Most Requested format. On-site training provides participants with an in-person facilitator who will work directly with the team, whether for a single training session or a training series. The Mainstream team will craft and tailor your experience to ensure that your training session is specific, relevant and unique to your audience while meeting your learning objectives. Why settle for ‘pre-formatted, pre-scripted, one-size fits all’ training programs, when our team is able to customize a program that is just right for you? We know that every team has unique learning needs, situations and that they come from a variety of industries, each having unique customer needs and demands. Our programs can be scaled to accommodate time restraints, unique learning needs and even industry or company nuances and barriers.
Don’t settle for a program that gives you almost what you need; our team wants to give you Exactly what you need.
Delivering traditional onsite training results …virtually!
We’ve officially changed the rules and redefined what is possible in the world of soft skills learning. Our unique technology, accompanied by honed delivery methodology, have successfully replicated the traditional classroom-style training environment, allowing it to exist online.
Most online training solutions limit participants’ responses to keystrokes or to single person conversations because -with inferior technology- group discussions become distorted and confusing to follow. Our Virtual Room has eliminated those barriers and encourages learning through meaningful instructor feedback, skills modelling and engaging group discussion, without visual or audio distortion
The Virtual Room is for any organization seeking a flexible substitute to traditional onsite training; whether to lower costs, eliminate unnecessary travel or to simply ease the burden of demanding work schedules.
Lunch & Learn
A Lunch and Learn session is an onsite or virtual learning program with a facilitator-led session sharing valuable information and skills on an area of identified learning interest. It’s a great break away from a traditional training program, allowing your team the opportunity to learn while enjoying their lunch. Due to the limited time, the program focuses on specific learning concepts and skills. It is an interactive session that quickly targets and reveals learning objectives that are predetermined by the training organizer. Lunch & Learn sessions are also great as a training series, providing progressive learning programs for developing skills in a ‘bite-sized’ format.
