corporate smokescreen

Warwick U had all its staff going through an endless list of compulsory (under threat of being cut from the local system) “training” modules that droned through fairly elementary notions of computer safety and data protection for hours. With a compulsory quiz associated with each module that cannot be taken without “listening” to the entire thing. Given the absence of any real training provided by this enormous waste of staff time (since I presume the modules can be completed during working hours!), I wonder at the purpose of this corporate exercise, beside checking all the boxes to achieve legal protection in case of a data breach or another disaster… (For certain, nothing meaningful can be inferred from the policy pages attached to the exercise, as they are written in newspeak with enough acronyms to incapacitate a brand new typewriter!)
