Combining Data Protection Training and Consultancy

News and information from the Advent IM team.

We have been providing data protection training for many years and we know from experience that an organisation needs to have a good quality security and data protection mindset when it comes to the efficacy of its data protection and privacy practices; it needs to be second nature and clearly understood by all. This is why we also offer consultancy for data protection that fit around their organisational needs and budget. This means that not only are people trained well in how to handle the information assets they are using and protecting but the organisation has a culture of good data protection, making it business as usual for all employees. We feel that combining data protection training with data protection activities and consultancy can offer a range of benefits to organisations, including:

Enhanced data protection awareness: Training programs can help employees understand the importance of data protection and their roles in ensuring compliance. This knowledge can be reinforced through practical activities and consultancy, giving employees hands-on experience and guidance.

Improved Compliance: Data protection training can help employees understand their responsibilities under data protection laws and regulations. This, in turn, can help organisations ensure that they are complying with the relevant rules and regulations. Data protection consultancy can help organisations understand and comply with relevant regulations and standards, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Practical activities can also help identify gaps in compliance, allowing organisations to take corrective measures.

Enhanced Security: Data protection activities and consultancy can help organisations identify potential vulnerabilities and risks to their data. This can help them take steps to improve their security measures and protect their sensitive information from cyber-attacks and other security threats.

Increased Efficiency: By combining data protection training with consultancy and activities, organisations can develop a more comprehensive and cohesive approach to data protection. This can lead to greater efficiency in managing data protection activities, as well as better communication and collaboration among team members.

Reduced risk of data breaches: With the help of data protection consultancy, organisations can identify and assess the risks associated with their data processing activities. They can then take appropriate measures to mitigate these risks, reducing the likelihood of data breaches and other data-related incidents. By increasing data protection awareness and compliance, organisations can reduce the risk of data breaches. This can help protect sensitive data and prevent legal and reputational damage.

Competitive Advantage: As data protection regulations become increasingly stringent, organisations that take data protection seriously can gain a competitive advantage. By investing in data protection training, consultancy, and activities, organisations can demonstrate their commitment to data protection, which can help them build trust with customers, partners, and other stakeholders.

Improved data management: Combining data protection training with practical activities and consultancy can help organisations develop better data management practices, including data classification, retention, and disposal. This can lead to improved data quality, reduced storage costs, and more efficient operations.

Increased trust: Demonstrating a commitment to data protection can help build trust with customers, partners, and other stakeholders. This can be particularly important for organisations that handle sensitive data, such as healthcare providers, financial institutions, and government agencies.
