Who/What is it For?
This training has a wide range of uses such as;
Foundational privacy training for business owners & staff of California based companies
Legal practitioners who want to get up to speed quickly on data privacy.
C-Suite professionals who need to quickly understand the impact of CCPA on their company
HR onboarding (New Hires)
Cybersecurity managers who need a privacy training template
Evidence of a training program for auditors, certification bodies or to the office of the Attorney General upon request.
Even if you have cybersecurity training in your organization, privacy training is a training module which should be separate from general security awareness training. This is to reflect the unique nature of the new regulations and the class of risks associated with consumer rights.
Why You Need it?
Fines and expensive class actions suits are now occuring every month for data protection breaches against companies hosting California resident personal data. CCPA regulations are now being cited in over 40 complaints a month in cases in courtrooms around the US. Most fines are avoidable if staff are aware of the risks and reminded of them on a regular basis.
In addition, the office of the attorney general (OAG), auditors, regulatory bodies, certification bodies and customers expect and demand that staff are specifically trained on privacy risks and take due care in handling personal data.
Training your staff quickly in cost effective way may be your best answer in training teams or your entire organisation.

What’s Included in the Downloads
There are two versions of product download to suit your environment, an advanced and simple version. The advanced version is a macro enabled powerpoint file with a .pptm extension while the second (simple version) is a non-macro version with a .pptx extension. The macro version as the name suggests contains macros which need to be allowed to run in your environment (see security sect: of the User Guide below).
The simple version as the name suggests does not include the student record completion section and is chosen by 70% of our clients.
How does the email & save record options work (macro version)?
In the ‘course completion record’ slide of the macro version of the PowerPoint, there are options to ‘Save Record’ and ‘Send Email’ when you click the start completion form button.
The Save record saves the trainee name, ID and trainer name to an access database called ‘Privacy_Training_Tracker.accdb’ which is created in the users ‘my documents’ folder. A record is created with name, trainer, score, email, studentID and automatic Timestamp of completion. See below.
Access Records (Raw Format)
Access Record Query Table Format
Please note that the example with multiple records above, users were using the same machine and windows login. To use the save feature to record a class of 20 users on different machines for example, would require extra configuration allowing saving records to an access database on a network location in your environment. (Contact us at [email protected]) for help here.
Also note that in this example, MS-Access was used, it’s also possible to configure SQL or another database type save options.
With regards to the email send option, it’s quite simple. After a student fills out the form and clicks the send email button, an email in the format below is sent to a receipient such as a trainer.
Access Record Query Table Format
The receipient can then collate these emails to compile a course completion history.
