Privacy Training for Data Privacy Day

Data Prviacy Data Privacy Awareness Training Courses 01

Data Privacy Day Logo 01

For Data Privacy Day this year, I’m happy to make available for the day two new short privacy training programs I created in collaboration with Intel.  Ordinarily, I require a login to view my training programs, but for this day, I have put them outside the wall for anyone to see.  So click on the programs below to watch them — I’ll keep them up through the weekend.  Then, they’ll go behind the wall, so you’ll need to request an evaluation login to see them afterwards.

NOTE: These programs are now no longer publicly available.  To see them, please contact us.

The first program is a short 2-minute awareness video about Data Retention.

The second program is an 8.5 minute program called Defining Personal Information.  It seeks to explain how to identify personal information, which is a tricky issue because what counts as personal information is not static and is contextual and contingent in some cases.

These programs were created for Intel with their collaboration.  Intel graciously allowed me to add generic versions of these programs to my training course library.   And in support of Data Privacy Day, Intel was encouraging of my making them publicly available.

Privacy Cartoon: Know Your Data

Privacy Awareness Training Cartoon

Here’s a cartoon I created.  It involves several Fair Information Practice Principles (FIPPs) and privacy best practices.  The ones involved (and not heeded) in this cartoon are doing a data inventory, informing people about the purposes of the collection of their data, using data for only those purposes, and not keeping data longer than necessary to accomplish those purposes.

For many organizations, there is a lot of data collected that gets stored and forgotten, or that is collected with no apparent purpose in mind.  Data inventories are a great way to take stock of this data and determine whether it is really necessary and appropriate to keep it.
