Employee Data Safety Training

training session

Training employees to handle data safely is good business. Providing employees proper training to deal with private and confidential data is a must for all organizations who encounter private data during their business processes. Every major law (HIPPA, Gramm Leach Bliley, Regulation S-P, FACTA, Red Flag Rule) that marshal consumer data protection, require businesses to provide employees training to ensure compliance with these laws. When businesses fail to train employees, financial penalties to the corporation are maximized on a per record basis when a data breach by an employee happens. The corporation is liable for employee actions. Alternatively, when corporations follow safe data training, financial penalties are minimized when a documented procedure is in place and followed. In a recent Massachusetts case an untrained Hospital employee left a laptop computer containing 192 medical records on a train. The hospital was fined $1 million dollars by the Department of Health and Human Services, under HIPPA laws. The ruling allowed the maximum fine on a per record breach (over $5200 per record) because safe data training could not be proven.
