The growing ubiquity of privacy laws globally has brought with it a greater general awareness of consumer rights and data protection issues. Despite this general awareness, organizations need to ensure that their employees are equipped with the specific knowledge necessary to satisfy compliance obligations under CCPA, GDPR, and other privacy laws as well as performing their roles with a privacy-first attitude.

The Benefits of Privacy Awareness Training Programs 

Responsibility for data privacy obligations extends throughout the organization and as such employees across all business functions should engage in relevant and ongoing training. There are several challenges that arise from this sizeable task including an ever-changing regulatory landscape and employee engagement levels. However, OneTrust Awareness Training takes the sting out of implementing a company-wide privacy training program through a continually expanding library of interactive learning experiences which are available in over 30 languages and easily deployed into existing learning management systems (LMS) or within the OneTrust platform.  

The old proverb “You can lead a horse to water” often rings true when it comes to mandatory employee training. But OneTrust offers tailored course content for functions such as HR, IT, marketing, and customer services including real-world examples and providing only the most relevant and engaging content for individual employees handling data. In addition, OneTrust Awareness Training is customizable to help you meet specific organizational needs as well as offering in-depth completion and performance metrics and the ability to easily generate compliance reports to help keep your training program on track.
