Who should attend this course? 

This course is an intermediate level course for which the target audience is the relevant staff of financial and non-financial institutions processing personal information, from customer databases to employee records, HR managers, data management professionals, computer security officials, marketing personnel, compliance officers, the staff of law enforcement agencies, risk management professionals, auditors, regulators, consultants and senior practitioners.


Data security is a critical new front in the battle against financial crime. With technological advances and the availability of tools like online banking, electronic fund transfers and virtual currencies, the issue of customer and employee data protection has become an increased concern for regulators and policymakers. Ever-increasing regulations in the area of data protection impose comprehensive compliance and regulatory requirements on financial institutions and businesses. These requirements necessitate the implementation of effective policies and procedures to ensure the appropriate assessment of an institution’s data security risks and putting in place effective measures to counter these risks and protect against data loss.

With the increased use of social media and networking sites, it has become more important than ever for institutions to understand the implications of such technology advances on their organisation. Staff need to be fully aware of the key concepts of data protection laws to securely collect, store and use protected data in the workplace, the identification of any ‘red-flag’ indicators in data security breaches, and the best solutions to prevent internal and external unauthorised access to protected data.

This course will enable participants to develop an in-depth understanding of the data protection laws, internationally recognised standards and recent policy developments. It will enhance their skills to efficiently recognise and detect any data security breaches, provide them with detailed knowledge of different types of old and recent data security attacks (with real-world examples and case scenarios), and enable them to develop appropriate systems and controls to prevent any such breaches within their institution and to effectively respond to any data breach or unauthorised access.
