  • Are you using the available data to inform your decisions?
  • Do organizations have more information than they need?
  • How can the data be used?
  • What business value exists in the data?
  • What risks exist with the data?
  • Does the data need to be protected and how should it be protected?

These questions are top of mind for data custodians and privacy professionals who are now faced with the challenge of ensuring that responsible privacy and security protocols are in place to allow the ethical use of large data stores of sensitive personal information in a manner that is compliant with the relevant regulations. Now, more than ever, standards and guidelines for protecting sensitive information need to be implemented.

This course fills this gap by providing a practical framework for managing the risk of using and disclosing personal information for secondary purposes, with a strong focus on health information.
