How organizations can train their employees through privacy certifications

The new Digital Personal Data Protection Bill 2023 (DPDPB) has been all over the news lately. But why is this important to you? When it becomes an act, this Bill will require all businesses and entities to comply with the Bill in terms of Data Privacy, Personal Data Processing, Data Protection, and much more. From establishing Data Principal Rights to ensuring Data Protection Officers for Significant Fiduciaries, the Bill marks the start of India’s Journey toward Data Privacy. But did you know that violations under the Bill can result in penalties as high as 250 Crores?

For any organization or business, that number is no joke. Hence, all organizations are on the run to ensure that their employees are well-trained in Data Privacy and know how to handle Personal Data. Some Renowned Data Protection Regulations also mandate Privacy training for employees. 

According to Article 39 (b) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Data protection officers must train the staff involved in data processing activity and other related audits.

Further, According to section 4.1.4 (c ) of Schedule 1, PIPEDA, Canada mandates that organizations must train and communicate with their staff about their policies and practices, and Principle 7 ( safeguard principle ) mentioned in section 4.7.4 mandates that organizations shall mandate their employees about maintaining confidentiality and privacy of personal information.

According to guidelines issued by the European Data Protection Board on ‘Examples regarding data breach notification,’ to mitigate the risk of accidental data transmission, it is mandated to enforce training and awareness programs for employees to gain a better understanding of the importance of personal data protection.  

While the new DPDPB might not directly incorporate employee training as a mandate, ensuring every employee is Privacy Trained is still essential. Why so? Well, did you know that employees have caused most data and security breach incidents? To be precise, according to a report published by Tessian titled “Psychology of human error,” around 88% of data breach incidents are caused by employees working in organizations. And another report suggests that lack of

proper employee training is the main reason for 80% of data breaches. So how can you overcome this problem?

Training through privacy certifications

The Solution to this problem is proper and in-depth Privacy training for employees. Regular, skippable, and mundane Online Course Modules are insufficient to ensure adequate Privacy Training for your employees. There are instances where such irregular training has resulted in heavy fines by data protection authorities.

For instance, the Romanian data protection authority has fined 100000 euros a bank for insufficient training to their employees regarding the concepts of personal data protection norms of the data subjects and also mandated that employee training is an inherent part of the organizational and technical measures that the said entity obliged to comply with.
