Moje iskustvo postizanja CIPT certifikata

Neven Dujmović CIPT
Odsjek za zaštitu osobnih podataka i privatnosti – Hrvatski Telekom d.d.

Kao osoba koja već 20 godina radi u ICT industriji uvijek sam držao da je profesionalna obveza svoje stručno znanje i iskustvo potvrditi relevantnim certifikatom za tehnologiju i djelatnost koju obavljam.
U tom smislu IAPP certifikati nesumnjivo spadaju u prestižna ostvarenja koji profesionalca za privatnost i zaštitu osobnih podataka čine vidljivim i priznatim u profesionalnoj zajednici.
Obzirom da je moja orijentacija direktno vezana na implementaciju zahtjeva privatnosti u realnim procesima i IT infrastrukturi, CIPT certifikat je bio idealan izbor za mene.
Sam postupak priprema za polaganje ispita osigurao mi je sistematizaciju mojih prethodnih znanja i učenje novog. Cijeli program je vrlo detaljan, pokriva studije slučaja i može se praktično primijeniti što ovo iskustvo čini izuzetno korisnom investicijom truda i vremena.
Želio bih naglasiti da je priprema CIPT ispita zahtjevan zadatak koji s jedne strane pokriva široko područje, a s druge strane predviđa dosta duboku razinu detalja. U cilju uspješnog fokusiranja osobnog angažmana u pripremi za polaganje ispita smatram da je ključan element uspjeha interakcija s trenerom. U tom smislu bio sam doista sretan što sam imao kvalitetnog trenera od kojeg sam dobio dragocjene savjete koji su mi dodatno produbili znanje i osigurali puno iskorištenje materijala potrebnih za spremanje ispita.
Nakon uspješnog stjecanja CIPT certifikata nastavio sam i dalje proces učenja i usavršavanja kroz bogate resurse koje nudi članstvo u IAPP-u. IAPP nudi pravu riznicu znanja koja je za nas članove većinom besplatna i osigurava praćenje regulativnih i tehnoloških trendova na dnevnoj osnovi.
IAPP certifikati i članstvo je vrijedno i moja preporuka.
