DATA SECURITY AWARENESS TRAINING
TAKING DEVICES FOR A DRIVE
About 30% of the data breaches reported to the Department for Health and Human Services involved the theft or loss of a portable electronic device such as a laptop or USB drive. Here are some more sobering statistics from a Ponemon Institute study (sponsored by Intel) titled The Billion Dollar Lost Laptop Problem:
● Lost or stolen laptops resulted in an average of $6.4 million in losses per company.
● In the period of a year, an “average of 263 laptops per organization went lost or missing.”
● A third of the laptops were lost in transit.
● On average, out of every 100 laptops, 7 will be lost or stolen.
This short module (~4 minutes) is a highly-engaging and memorable information security training program. It is about how to mitigate the risks when transporting portable electronic devices. It can stand alone or can be snapped together with other topic segments. Throughout the training program, trainees engage with various scenarios involving personal data on laptops. This program is highly interactive and fun. It can be used for many purposes, including HIPAA security training, general data security awareness training, and short periodic information security messages.

About TeachPrivacy and Our Training Philosophy
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. He has taught privacy law every year since 2000, has published 10 books and more than 50 articles, including the leading textbook on information privacy law and a short guidebook on the subject.
