ABOUT THIS COURSE
Think about the things that are uniquely you. Your name? Your email address, your beliefs, and all the other things you probably haven’t considered to have real monetary value. We call that personal data, and this course is all about how organisations must handle it. To them, personal data can mean big money. Why? Because it can be used to sell you stuff, even stuff you never knew you needed.
So, we let organisations have these little tidbits. They can help to make our lives easier or stay connected, after all. Hello, social networking! But we have to trust that what they do with that personal data is totally above board. If not, well, individuals can and should take action. This course explores best practices for those handling that data.
