Privacy, Risk, and Trust

Module Privacy Risk Trust 02


For organizations, protecting privacy is an issue of risk and trust.  Protecting privacy mitigates risks of costly incidents, reputational harm, regulatory penalties, and other harms.  Protecting privacy also is essential to people’s trust in an organization.  An organization depends upon the trust of its existing and prospective customers, clients, business partners, vendors, and employees.  When this trust is lost, it can have a devastating impact on an organization.

A key component of privacy awareness training is emphasizing how privacy protection relates to an organization’s goals.  Some wrongly think that privacy gets in the way of an organization’s endeavors and innovation; but protecting privacy solidifies the foundation upon which an organization sits — its relationships with people and its reputation.

Our short course, Privacy, Risk, and Trust (~ 5.5 minutes), is a highly-interactive introduction to why protecting privacy is important. The course promotes privacy awareness by discussing the risks to organizations in failing to protect privacy and how protecting privacy fosters trust and improves relationships with people. The course has 3 quiz questions.

    About TeachPrivacy and Our Training Philosophy

    Daniel Solove Privacy Awareness Training TeachPrivacy was founded by Professor Daniel J. Solove, the leading expert on privacy and data security law. He is deeply involved in the creation of all training programs because he believes that training works best when made by subject-matter experts and by people with extensive teaching experience.

    According to Professor Solove: “Great training isn’t about slickness or tricks. It is about teaching. The goal is to make people understand, care, and remember. Great training is made with genuine passion – to make people love training, it must be made with love. Excellent substance is essential. The material must be explained clearly, understandably, and concretely. The content must be short and to the point – and it must be engaging. Slickness and gimmicks can’t compensate for lackluster substance.”

    TeachPrivacy provides privacy awareness training, information security awareness training, phishing training, HIPAA training, FERPA training, PCI training, as well as training on many other privacy and security topics.

    Professor Solove is a law professor at George Washington University Law School.
