How To Protect Data And Reputations Training

5 Hour Workshop
Tailored to Your Needs And Delivered at Your Site

Why Run This Workshop For Your Managers?

Whether it be rioters using social media to organise groups; people falling foul of the courts for their Twitter messages or more commonly, careers ending due to a moment of madness online, learning the perils of using the internet, is vital for all managers (and in turn, their staff.)

In addition to loss of reputation (for individuals and the company) data loss is a growing problem and yet it can so easily be controlled.

This workshop also allows you to analyse risks at your own organisation and set an action plan. For organisations in the medical or care sector we have a specialist version of this workshop. Combined with resources we provide you to educate your employees, this is a highly effective workshop that has received media coverage around the world

Situations That Can Be Covered? (Tailored to Your Needs)

  • Your staff seem to spend all day on Twitter or Facebook, but you can never catch them, what can you do?
  • A member of staff was reported for viewing porn on his laptop, but you can’t see any record of it, what should you do?
  • One of your staff wrote nasty comments about your company on their Facebook page. Can you fire them?
  • One of your employees has explicit photos on their Facebook page, can you tell them to take those photos off?
  • You want to screen all job candidates by checking their social network pages is that OK?
  • You think one of your employees is a cyber bully, what should you do?
  • A member of staff keeps asking for details of any records on them, plus any email sent by their boss that refers to them, do you need to keep providing it?
  • Data leaves your site on laptops and USB sticks, how can you minimise the risk?
  • You know that data could easily be lost from your company
  • You think you are probably in breach of the Data Protection Act
  • How should you coach a social media user who assumes that their pages are private? (We show you how to access them)

Protostar training is both legal and real world practical advice.

You can send us your questions in advance and we will try to incorporate them into the session.
