I am interested in finding out how you cascade data protection awareness to your staff. I am often asked the same or similar Data Protection questions. If I could answer the question once and let other see the answer, without having to ask me the same question, then it would leverage the understanding.
I could prepare an FAQ, but this is a static system which may require a second FAQ to address concerns about the first set of FAQ. At the same time, the FAQ can only address the questions as asked and would take time to develop. Unless I created an FAQ list that I updated every day.
I was interested in whether anyone used an internal blog to engage staff and answer their data protection questions. Would this allow people to see internally the discussion. Often people will have the same question but hesitate to ask because human nature being what it is.
A) They do not want to appear ignorant (this never stops me :)) or
B) because they are concerned they are doing something wrong and they may get in trouble.
C) They do not know who to ask.
If you have a system are there any drawbacks or mistakes that have taught you valuable lessons and you would want others to avoid.
Any views would be appreciated on or off the list.
