in true live in-person dedicated intensive mode

Become GDPR and DPO Ready Privacy Pro through seven days of live in-person classes that include the IAPP’s Foundations of Privacy and Data Protection, European Data Protection, Privacy Program Management and Privacy Technicians Body of Knowledge training.

First day Foundations of Privacy and Data Protection provide you with knowledge you need to advance a career in privacy and related fields, In-demand skills you can start applying right away, A vocabulary of essential privacy terminology and prepare you for advanced privacy training and IAPP certification that follows.

IAPP faculty with academic and practice experience teaches the essentials of envisioning, designing and executing a comprehensive privacy management program within GDPR requirements. Classes cover pan-European and national data protection laws, key privacy terminology, and the practical concerns around personal data protection and trans-border data flows. They equip you to monitor compliance, manage internal data protection activities, train data processing staff, conduct internal audits, and more.

With the GDPR in effect, companies are searching for DPO candidates with the requisite knowledge and skills. These training programs are based off the body of knowledge for the ANSI/ISO-accredited Certified Information Privacy Professional/Europe (CIPP/E) and Certified Information Privacy Management (CIPM) certifications. CIPP/E and CIPM are recommended as the most appropriate for aspiring DPOs, according to Eric Lachaud in “Should the DPO be certified?” in International Data Privacy Law, a journal published by Oxford University Press.

Data protection authorities around the globe are enforcing regulations that mandate how data can be captured, stored and used. This makes technology, data and other professionals with dual literacy in both privacy and technology essential components to ensure operations meet privacy goals and mitigate risks. Operations of all sizes are investing in Certified Information Privacy Technologists (CIPT). Your CIPT certification validates your deep understanding of privacy in technology and enables you to apply what you have learned immediately to your daily workflow as a technology and data professional. As a legal person your CIPT certification provide you with common language to discuss data protection and privacy with IT and technical people not only speaking their langiage but also to understand what are “state of the art” solutions to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures and Privacy by design. 

The Professional Standards for Data Protection Officers issued by the EDPS DPO network in 2010 provides useful tips and best practices for the DPOs of the EUIs:

1.3. Certification
“The DPO should be given the opportunity to develop his/her skills. This could include the possibility to obtain certification as privacy professional. The most relevant certification at this stage would be the one provided by the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), which offers various privacy professional certifications, including Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP) and Certified Information Privacy Professional/Information Technology (CIPP/IT). “

What’s more, IAPP certifications, are widely hailed as the gold standard in privacy certification because they are also the only certifications in the industry accredited under ANSI/ISO specifications and recognized under standards set by the International Accreditation Forum.
