Explain two ways of helping other practitioners to understand the importance of handling information securely.

The importance of handling information securely can be conveyed to others by explaining the consequences of not protecting the personal data of others. This can include consequences to the individual such as social exclusion or fraud as well as consequences to the professional including disciplinary action, dismissal and legal action.

Another method would be to ask them how they would feel if their own personal information was passed onto others without their consent.
