POPI Awareness Workshop – BM-POPIA

Information Privacy and Cybersecurity Essentials

Course Code: BM-POPI

The internet and associated information technologies have driven unprecedented innovation, economic value and access to social services. Many of these benefits are fuelled by data about individuals that flow through complex ecosystems. As a result, individuals may not be fully aware of the potential consequences for their privacy as they interact with systems, products, and services. At the same time, organizations may not realize the full extent of these consequences for individuals, for society, or for their enterprises. The escalation of security breaches involving personally identifiable information (PII) has contributed to the loss of millions of records over the past few years. Breaches involving PII are hazardous to both individuals and organizations. Individual harms may include identity theft, embarrassment, or blackmail. Organizational harms may include a loss of public trust, legal liability, or remediation costs. The overall objective of this workshop is to develop privacy awareness that permeates to all levels of the organization and to promote an effective privacy culture. In addition, to improves an individual’s awareness with today’s most common cybersecurity threats and how to protect themselves and your organization from cyber threats.
