Protecting Data when Home Working

About this course

With more organisations now adopting remote working, what are you doing to protect your employees, customers and reputation? Compliance around data and data protection for remote workers is very important. This is why we created a 30-minute course to protect you and your organisation.
Data breaches in organisations are often accidental and the result of staff carelessness.  The way we work had changed dramatically in recent years, resulting in a greater dependence on technology to enable effective communication between employees when home working.  


What is the purpose of this course?

This Protecting Data when Home Working course will help your employees understand the essential elements of protecting data when they work outside the office.  It is important that your employees are at the centre of driving a privacy culture across the organisation to ensure protection and compliance.

According to a recent article by Irish Tech News ‘91% of attacks launch with a phishing email’.

Making the move at short notice from your trusted office environment to homeworking can create security risks, making homeworkers susceptible to falling for scams such as phishing emails.


Who needs Protecting Data when Home Working training?

It is vital that all employees who work from home (or remotely) know how to protect your organisation from cyber attacks and understand their obligation under data protection legislation to protect the data they handle against: 

  • Unauthorised and unlawful processing
  • Accidental loss

  • Damage 



The standard rate of this course is €40 per staff member, however, depending on the number of staff you have, discounts may be available.
