Program Overview

How do I secure the information in my organization against increasing threats in this digital world to uphold the Data Privacy Act of 2012? How do I operationalize an information security policy to ensure compliance with regulations and respect data subject rights?

In this age of increasing risks such as cyberthreats, smishing, and online scams, establishing an information security program is necessary to protect the confidentiality, integrity, availability, and use of personal data. Without robust information security operations in place, your organization increases its risks to unauthorized disclosure and unauthorized access from both external hackers and malicious insiders.

Establishing an information security program is vital to operationalizing a data privacy management program. With the expected increase in enforcement from the National Privacy Commission, an information security program helps secure the processing of personal data.

This course will teach you how to set up an information security program essential for supporting your organization’s privacy and data protection accountabilities. The course will provide frameworks, techniques, and best practices that must comprise an information security program, including information asset management, information security risk management, and security operations.

For organizations with an existing information security program, this course will help you assess your current program and address the gaps according to internationally-recognized standards and best practices.
