On this 4-day course, you'll be certified in the global gold standard for European Data Protection - known as the Information Privacy Professional/Europe (CIPP/E). Additionally, you'll become a Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM) - the world's first and only privacy programme management certification.
The CIPP/E programme, developed by the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), will grow your understanding of pan-European and national data protection laws. You'll also get familiar with key data protection terminology and important concepts concerning the protection of personal data and trans-border data flows.
Earning the CIPM demonstrates you have the knowledge to make a privacy programme work for your organisation - you'll be the first point of contact for all things data protection related. This certification also holds accreditation under ISO 17024:2012.
With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) taking effect in 2018, it's imperative you have a knowledgeable Data Protection Officer (DPO) capable of monitoring compliance, managing internal data protection activities, training data staff and more. Achieving the CIPP/E and CIPM validates this knowledge and guarantees a wealth of understanding of the GDPR.
This course is aimed at:
On this course, you'll be prepared for and sit the IAPP Certified Privacy Professional - Europe (CIPP/E) exam and the IAPP Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM) exam. These exams are covered by your Certification Guarantee.
You'll benefit from Firebrand's IAPP certified instructors. This means you can be confident that you're being taught by the best. Firebrand's experienced instructors will also make use of their wealth of real-world experience to enrich the course content and offer relevant, useful examples.
