  • Video based: information is presented by an instructor.
  • Simple to use with relevant and informative content.
  • Reduces the likelihood of a data breach as a result of a human error.
  • Supports regulations such as the UK's Data Protection Act, the US’s HIPAA and GLBA, the EU Privacy Protection Directive, and Canada's PIPEDA, all of which make it clear that organisations must ensure their employees are aware of privacy issues.
