Around the world, data protection is a business imperative, driven both by regulations, such as South Africa’s Protection of Personal Information Act (PoPIA), and by the growing realisation that consumers’ trust, or lack thereof, in your business can be a competitive differentiator. This means that the awareness of protection, privacy, and liability must become top of mind.

Companies are no longer able to acquire, collect and use customer and other personal information without concern for rules, laws, and liabilities.

Says Gary Allemann, MD of Master Data Management and eLearning partner, “The frequent occurrence of data misuse and theft has created the need for companies to reexamine their approach to data protection and privacy.  The development of laws around the world focused on data protection, privacy, and responsibility has created a new set of challenges in the world of data usage and business analytics, while, at the same time consumers are increasingly demanding personalised experiences.”

“The day is quickly approaching where companies will need to be able to manage and track data usage, data location, and customer consent. Business people must understand their company’s responsibilities in retaining customer data to support business decision making.”

In this 5 hour course, which forms part of our Certified Data Steward (CDS) curriculum, Evan Levy discusses the business challenges and drivers for compliance; reviews key concepts and terminology; and reviews the activities that go into supporting a privacy and protection initiative.

You will learn:

  • Key concepts of data protection
  • The impact of protecting data on an existing analytics environment
  • Privacy by design – An approach to integrating these principles into the data lifecycle
  • The phases and activities involved with Data Privacy/Protection Initiative
  • The stakeholders and participants of a Data Protection Initiative

If you are a Chief Data Officer, are responsible for Risk and Compliance, or are otherwise impacted by PoPIA or similar regulations, then this course is for you!

This course can be completed stand-alone or contribute towards your internationally recognised CDS accreditation.
