I have produced a new Privacy Shield training course that provides a short introduction to the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework. Privacy Shield is an arrangement reached between the EU and US for companies to transfer data about EU citizens to the US. Privacy Shield replaces the Safe Harbor Arrangement, which was invalidated in 2015 in the case of Schrems v. Data Protection Commissioner.
Here’s a cartoon I created to illustrate the importance of security awareness training. I hope you find it amusing.
I created a new poster about information security training, which is debuting at the RSA conference. This poster is based on the fact that the vast majority of information security incidents and data breaches occur because of human mistakes. Information security is only in small part a technology problem; it is largely a human problem.
If you’re at RSA and are interested in information security awareness training, please drop by the TeachPrivacy booth at Moscone North 4802.
You can pick up a copy of this poster. And you can also learn about our newest training, which includes a really neat Where’s Waldo style game where users spot privacy and security risks.
I’m pleased to announce a new training program: Spot the Risks: Privacy and Security. The program is a Where’s Waldo style risk-spotting game that takes about 5 minutes to complete. Trainees are asked to spot the risks in an office. Feedback is provided about each risk so trainees learn many of the most important best practices.
