Senior Information Risk Owners (SIRO) are usually Executive Directors or Senior Board members, and it can be tricky balancing this additional aspect of your role. This is where our SIRO course comes in. Developed by data protection practitioners with a wealth of experience, this course will help you understand and perform your SIRO role with complete confidence.
