Data Privacy & Information Security

Handling Information - Data privacy and information security

Deal properly with personal data and sensitive information

Data and information are important company assets that must be protected. In every company, the slightest lapse in attention by an individual employee can have drastic consequences – customer data might accidentally be made public, internal research results might be stolen, or a virus might find its way into the IT system, for instance. To prevent this from happening and to ensure that all employees are aware of their responsibilities, the e-learning program ‘Dealing with information’ provides support for companies in the context of preventative training measures.

This tutorial is based on the established e-learning programs "Data privacy" and "Information security" that are in use at many companies; it offers upgraded content and technology. The tutorial is divided into lessons by topic, meaning that it can be adapted to cover just data privacy or just information security by selecting individual lessons from the pool.

"Dealing with information" provides learners with insight into the relevant laws, as well as clear, practical information about potential everyday dangers. In addition to numerous examples and exercises, the tutorial places special emphasis on providing simple, comprehensible instructions on how to act – from coming up with a secure password to complying with the most important data privacy regulations.
