Data Privacy is when customers, employees or anyone need to know what personal data organisations are collecting about them and how it is being used. Data privacy is far more than just the security and protection of personal data. Organisations need to process personal data ethically and legally. That could mean not bombarding individuals with unwanted SMS marketing messages but it could also mean simply not sharing personal information with third parties without the individual’s consent. Also, organisations need to be transparent about what personal data they are capturing and how it’s going to be used.
The introduction of the UAE Data Protection Law means that there will be a significant impact on organisations which operate or do business with the United Arab Emirates because they will need to develop data privacy programmes to meet the requirements of the law.
The purpose of data protection training is to make sure that your employees understand the different types of data as well as the different roles that data plays in an organization, and the rights of individuals to be informed and to access their data.
