with the senior information risk owner Course

Are you looking to understand what it means to be a Senior Information Risk Owner (SIRO)? Do you wish to be more confident with identifying and mitigating information security risks?

If so, take this half-day course. It provides a sound foundation for those already in the SIRO role, or looking to move into it. Throughout the course, we will look at why the SIRO is an important role in health and social care, along with your SIRO role in the context of leadership governance and communications. You’ll get an in-depth look at the role, and what will be expected of it.

The course is also interactive, so you will be encouraged to ask questions throughout, and can share your real-world experiences with other attendees, discussing issues and ideas to help them within their role. You’ll also talk through real-life practice scenarios to aid with your learning, giving you a proper hands-on approach.

When you train with us at DPAS, you’ll get more than just the training. We’ll provide you with free policies, templates, and tools – after the course has concluded. We will also supply you with the relevant resources to help you throughout.

What's Included?

We’ll provide you with one of our highly skilled live trainers for the duration of the course. These experts currently work as DPOs or consultants, so can train you using real examples from their experience in the industry, ensuring the course is practical and reliable. 

We don’t just deliver courses, and leave you to it. We provide you access to our online portal – which contains dozens of useful tools, templates, audits, policies, and more – all available for you to use within your organisation.  

Though our courses are virtual, you’ll still be fully involved by participating in breakout sessions, asking questions, and sharing your experiences. You can receive valuable advice from peers in the industry, network with other delegates, and make worthwhile connections.  

Our trainers are here to help you. We will provide you with mentor support for one month after the course, to assist with any queries or issues you may have.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

Easy to understand data privacy and information security services that are always accessable, consistenty pragmatic and continually exceeding expectations.

With a DPAS course, you’re guaranteed an expert trainer, who is not only well known in the industry, but has years of hands-on data protection experience under their belt.

Our training programmes are internationally recognised and accredited by either The Chartered Institute for IT (BCS) or Continual Professional Development (CPD) Scheme. An accredited course will look better on your CV. 

If you want to speak to clients who have experienced our range of training courses, then get in touch. We are always happy to pass on contact details of our customers – with their consent, of course!

When you train with us, you receive access to free tools, templates, policies, and more – which you can use in your organisation. We also offer one month of support after the courses to ensure your questions are answered and that you’re confident going forward.

If you want us to train your staff virtually we can! Alternatively, if you’d prefer a more interactive approach, we can come to your place of work. We will always try and fit in with you and will be more than happy to discuss options.

We can offer bespoke training created for your organisation. For example, we can simulate a cyber attack for your Senior Managers to see how they would react to a real life threat, best preparing them for those situations should they ever arise.
