Senior Information Risk Owner (SIRO) Training

Our one day CPD accredited SIRO training course is suitable for newly appointed or experienced SIROs, including those who are required to support SIROs and Caldicott Guardians. It meets the annual training requirements as specified in the Information Governance Toolkit (IG Toolkit) for annual SIRO training.

A SIRO should be an Executive or Senior Manager on the Board who is familiar with information risks and the organisation’s response to risk. The SIRO role is to lead and champion the organisation’s information risk policy, and provide written advice and assurance to the board regarding information risk.

It is a practical, interactive course with detailed handouts. We cover a range of topics including:

  • Sharing information safely and lawfully
  • Interaction between the SIRO, Caldicott Guardians and Information Asset Owners (IAOs)
  • General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) update
  • Case studies
  • Mini Healthcheck to test your organisation’s compliance in key areas
