POPI Privacy Training for Employees
What You Need To Know To Keep Safe and Compliant
After June 30, 2021, your job changed. Each person in SA working with the personal information of others faced new rules.
You must follow the edicts of the Protection of Personal Information Act. You will discover more than you thought possible after each step in this course. You will learn how to protect yourself, your firm, (and your job).
When you finish, you will protect your devices from desperadoes. Hide your papers from thieves. And lock scammers and social engineers out of your space.
You'll never need to worry about losing a password again. (Or remembering one.) You'll soon design easy-to-remember passwords requiring a quadrillion years to break. (That's longer than the universe has existed, so you'll be good until you retire.)
Jokes aside, this privacy stuff is serious. You don't want your doctor to expose some pre-operation photos of you. Nor your bank to disclose your credit card info, or Facebook to lose your email/password combo again.
The rest of us feel the same way about our information being in your care as you go about your daily work. Lose it, and we'll be unhappy enough to make enough noise for your firm to close.
This course will show you the dangers in your business and personal environments. And then show you how to fix them.
Most of us feel intimidated by the technology around us. Yet 95% of all data "breaches" (losses and exposures) come from human errors. That's me forgetting to lock a door or leaving an important document on my desk instead of locking it away.
We'll address all these issues in short lectures. You can ask questions at any time in each lesson, and you will get fast answers. (You can also see the answers to all the other questions asked before.)
You will discover how to spot looming problems. And how to know when your PC faces viruses.
You'll get a certificate at the end to prove you're competent in this new field.
