IAPP Certified Information Privacy Professional Europe

How does the CIPP/e certificate help you put the requirements of the GDPR into practice?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a complex and far-reaching regulation that sets strict requirements for the processing of personal data. The IAPP CIPP/e training program is specifically designed to help you understand and put into practice the requirements of the GDPR, so you can effectively understand your company’s privacy challenges and confidently start managing a privacy compliance program within your organisation.

You’ll learn about data protection principles, data subject rights, the requirements for data processing agreements with vendors and partners. You will get to better understand the GDPR’s risk-based approach and how it compares to requirements found in information security management. You’ll also learn about the roles and obligations of the data controller, data processors, and better understand the position and responsibilities of the data protection officer.

In addition to understanding the requirements of the GDPR, the training program will also provide you with the practical tools and techniques necessary to implement a privacy compliance program within your organisation. You’ll learn how to conduct privacy impact assessments, develop policies and procedures, and implement privacy by design and default. You’ll also learn about the key operational aspects of privacy compliance, including data breach notification and vendor management.
