Course Description

Dealing with personal information

Privacy breaches make headlines all the time. But while everyone thinks they know what privacy is, understanding how the laws apply to our work, clients and customers is another matter.

Salt Compliance Privacy training breaks down the privacy requirements into language that learners can understand, supported by a rich visual design.

The introductory module summarises the key concepts surrounding how we handle personal information at work. Subsequent modules explore the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) in more detail. The final module focuses on credit reporting obligations.

Scenarios and case studies appear throughout the modules, helping to place the training into vivid practical context.

The course contains a fresh look and feel that is intended to attract learners’ active engagement throughout the training, without overwhelming or distracting them from the concepts.

Who should do this training?

This training is designed for staff at any level within an organisation that comes in contact with private information or could be at risk of breaching Australian privacy laws.

It is designed to cater for a diverse audience and all levels of staff, and addresses all 13 Principles in plain language.

If your organisation has any specific privacy requirements, the Salt Privacy standard format can be customised to your individual needs. If you are in the health sector, please enquire about our Health Privacy course.
