As a SIRO you are expected to understand how the strategic business goals of the organisation may be impacted by information risks. Our one day virtual course will help you to understand how to identify information security risks, how to mitigate these risks and manage incidents. Throughout the day we will look at why the SIRO is an important role in health and social care, your role as a SIRO looking at leadership governance and communications. The course is practical and interactive and provides a sound foundation for those already in the role or looking to move into the role.  

The purpose of the training is to ensure that delegates are sufficiently trained to deliver the role of the SIRO. Delegates will come away with a deep understanding of the role, the safe sharing of patient data and mitigation of risks associated with patients, staff and the organisation. We will look at working to reduce risk and demonstrating compliance with the law and legislation.

We will look at privacy by design, how to consider emerging risks and how to mitigate these. We will also look at data breaches, investigating them and how to report them.

Delegates will confidently be able to understand what data they can share, and provide assurance to the Board that the organisation is acting in the right manner.

This is a virtual course which is held online using Microsoft Teams, ll documents provided throughout the course will be shared teams.

We start the course at 10am and finish at around 4pm.

The course takes around 5-6 hours to complete, but we remain flexible on timing as often we will discuss practical applications to develop understanding.
