Knowledge and awareness at the right level
An education plan
Knowledge, awareness & demonstrability
A good education plan takes different roles and the corresponding knowledge and awareness levels into account. It may be necessary to periodically hold a training or workshop for someone who frequently works with personal data, while it is sufficient to train someone who works less with personal data via e-learning. Because the law prescribes that permanent education of employees is mandatory, the education plan must also consider how it can be demonstrated that employees have been trained.
“Not documentation, but education is the core of a good privacy and data protection policy. Without knowledge and awareness, all plans are made in vain.”
Johan Martens – Senior Lecturer DPOC Academy – CIPP/E
