What is your organisation doing for European Data Protection Day?
Many organisations across Europe are using the event to raise awareness internally amongst their staff. Staff awareness training is critical to information security and to ISO27001 compliance. No matter how many technical controls are implemented, valuable information is not completely secure, unless the employees are trained in security awareness policies and procedures.
