We have launched several new privacy training programs, including a series with brief introductions to privacy law. We have completed a privacy training program about US Privacy Law with a video and interactive material / quiz questions. And we just completed a training program about EU Privacy Law. This program has a 7.5 minute video (as well as an abridged version at 4.5 minutes), and there’s a separate excerpt on the Safe Harbor Arrangement for those who only want to cover Safe Harbor in their training programs.
These programs are illustrated-as-I-talk. You can preview the European Union Privacy Law video.
Coming soon: Global Privacy Law, which will focus heavily on the OECD Privacy Guidelines and the APEC Privacy Framework.

We have begun producing a new program series about financial privacy. The first two programs are completed.
The first part is an overview video that discusses the importance of financial privacy and the various laws and regulations that regulate. These laws and regulations are discussed very broadly. The video concludes with some key best practices for protecting financial data. This video is made in a unique style — an animated piece of currency.
The second program focuses on the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA). The video discusses the GLBA’s scope, notice, confidentiality, data sharing, and security. The video also explains why protecting the privacy and security of financial data is important.
There are interactive materials and quiz questions to accompany the video.
I recently created this 2-minute comical cartoon vignette to teach about the importance of privacy and apps. Far too often, apps are not designed with privacy in mind, and people install apps without considering the privacy implications.
