Data privacy refers to the evolving relationship between technology and legal rights to (or public expectations of) privacy in the collection and sharing of personal data. As technology has advanced, so have the ways and pace with which personal data privacy can be breached, making data security and confidentiality a top business and legal concern. While there is no sweeping federal law regarding data privacy in the U.S., industry-specific laws have been enacted in response to specific privacy concerns and international data privacy laws set standards for business transactions in much of the world. In response to this, data protection training and data privacy training has become a standard for many human resources departments.
Syntrio offers a series of courses addressing industry-specific data privacy and security laws as well as the best practices for addressing the legal and ethical aspects of personal data protection.
