Because data privacy laws are so varied and complex, employers covered by these laws are wise to invest in training for their employees. Effective training on data privacy laws and best practices can protect companies from costly violations.
In the past several years, numerous companies have been required to pay millions of dollars in fines for data privacy violations. Thousands more have been subjected to expensive and time-consuming lawsuits due to inadvertent or careless errors.
The use of consumer data has become ubiquitous, and more organizations are finding themselves subject to one or more data privacy laws. Many employers find themselves covered even if they are in traditionally unregulated fields. Regardless of the type of business, employees need data privacy training in order to ensure compliance with the growing number of data privacy laws in the U.S. and beyond.
We offer Data Privacy Training unlike any other on the market. In a single succinct, engaging course, we cover all of the information the average employee needs to know to comply with domestic data privacy laws. Our in-house legal experts have carefully crafted the training to cover only the topics that are necessary to equip employees to comply with global data privacy best practices: no more and no less. We have eliminated the redundancies and irrelevant information so common in other data privacy courses and applied our own unique, scenario-based approach to compliance training. This has enabled us to deliver a course that is engaging, while still delivering the vital compliance instruction necessary to protect your organization.
Training on data privacy should be provided to all executives, managers, employees, administrative personnel, and anyone else who might become involved in handling consumer information on behalf of an organization.

Clear Law can also translate the course into any languages needed.
When providing online compliance training, many employers violate the Americans with Disabilties Act because their training is not fully accessible to users with disabilities. The EEOC has sued several employers in recent years, in part for not providing accessible training. This year, the U.S. Department of Justice issued “Web Accessibility Guidance Under the Americans with Disabilities Act” and noted its renewed focus on suing companies for violationg this guidance.
Clear Law Institute complies with not only Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act but also the much stricter requirements of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 AA standard.
