What Makes a Privacy Awareness Program Adaptive? An Adaptive Privacy Awareness Program is flexible, continually changing and improving to meet your specific data protection needs and business requirements.

An Adaptive Privacy Awareness Program is flexible, continually changing and improving to meet your specific data protection needs and business requirements. This is accomplished by using a proven and scalable program architecture to measure and adjust your awareness program on a continual basis.

MediaPro’s Adaptive Awareness Framework provides the structure for this process; using this proven framework helps you continually improve your privacy awareness efforts as your business and regulatory needs change. This Adaptive Awareness Framework is your blueprint for success. An adaptive awareness program is made of a collection of different training and awareness tools and services that is a tactical implementation of the framework. These program tools and services should also be adaptive at their core.

Components of an Adaptive Privacy Awareness Program

At the core of the Adaptive Privacy Awareness Program is the Adaptive Privacy Library™, a collection of training topics you can mix-and-match to achieve your privacy awareness training goals. The adaptive library provides you the capability to adjust your awareness program on an as-needed basis as you mature through the Adaptive Awareness Framework process. If needed, you can also use training topics from our Adaptive Security Library™ and our Compliance Training Library to give you the exact training content you need.

Other Adaptive Awareness program tools you may use to help deliver a best-practice program include privacy awareness reinforcement materials and privacy knowledge assessments (or privacy surveys). A good knowledge assessment will help you identify key privacy risk areas that are related to human behavior. Once these risk areas are identified, you can address them with targeted training content and reinforcement options. Without this flexibility, your privacy awareness training program may fall short of expectations.

Adaptable Tools that Support a Proven ProcessAn effective privacy awareness program includes both training and targeted reinforcement to cement key learning topics.

The Adaptive Awareness Framework provides the process to assess the current state of your awareness program and offers guidance on a maturity model for future growth.  MediaPro offers a number of tools and services that can be packaged together to support this framework and enable your program to grow and thrive over time.

You may already have a good awareness program, or a partial program, in place. If so, you are free to leverage just the tools and services you need from our awareness offerings to expand or complement your program efforts as needed. Outlined below is a high-level description of how the Adaptive Awareness Framework works together with MediaPro’s awareness tools and services to achieve your program and business goals.

Adaptable Tools that Support Behavior Change

You can effect real change and improve the performance of your workforce. But you can’t expect to improve human performance and behavior by providing the same privacy awareness training experience to your employees once a year. You need the right tools, and a framework, which can guide you toward a best-practice privacy awareness solution.

As your organization matures, so should your awareness program strategy. MediaPro’s adaptive framework, services, and products, are designed to fulfill this vision and to help you deliver a world-class privacy awareness initiative.

The Adaptive Awareness Framework Process:

Analyze

An adaptive awareness program will provide a way to assess your employee-related privacy and data protection risks and identify the behaviors needed to reduce these risks. A good knowledge assessment will provide baseline data that can assess and measure how your awareness program is working. MediaPro offers an assessment and measurement survey tool that can be used to analyze your human-related risk profile:

  • The Adaptive Knowledge Assessment: Provides a snapshot of overall employee privacy knowledge at multiple points in time. This allows you to assess your privacy training program and determine if you are building privacy-aware intelligence within your organization.
Plan

An adaptive awareness program should adapt over time as your privacy assessment, training, and reinforcement activities change and mature.  This will include a privacy training strategy that targets your key privacy risk areas. MediaPro offers a planning tool that can support this process and helps you mitigate these risks by aligning them to your privacy training program activities:

  • The Adaptive Planning Tool: Lets you easily create a behavioral risk-based strategic awareness program plan that is comprehensive and tailored to any budget.
Train

An adaptive privacy awareness program will deliver the right training content exactly where it’s needed. A general privacy awareness coursed may go to everyone, while other role-based privacy topics are presented to only those people that need them. MediaPro’s adaptive training delivery model allows for the rapid assembly and release of targeted training content:

Reinforce

An adaptive awareness program will support your learning efforts with a variety of communication tools and methods to increase retention of your privacy message and sustain behavior change. MediaPro offers an assortment of reinforcement tools to ensure that your messages around privacy and data protection become part of your organizational culture.

  • The Adaptive Reinforcement Library: Includes a number of reinforcement communication tools including: animated videos, interactive games, privacy posters, and privacy newsletter and web article content.
