Data Protection Officer (DPO) Training Bundle

Official IAPP Training and Certification

Data is a strategic asset. And the risks associated with it continue to skyrocket. Data breach, identity theft, loss of customer trust—these are just some of the threats to organizations of all sizes, in all sectors, on today’s marketplace.

Cybersecurity and privacy dominate most organizations’ priorities, as companies strive to develop robust unified frameworks and use technologies like AI to detect and control breaches. An International Association of Privacy Professional  (IAPP) study found that 56% of its respondents are working towards a unified, global data protection/privacy strategy, with built-in capabilities to adapt to individual jurisdictional requirements when required.

IAPP is the world’s largest and most comprehensive global information privacy community. It is also a resource for professionals who want to develop and advance their careers by helping their organizations successfully manage these risks and protect their data. In fact, we’re the world’s largest and most comprehensive global information privacy community.

The IAPP is the only place that brings together the people, tools, and global information management practices you need to thrive in today’s rapidly evolving information economy.

How it works – course details

The Data Protection Officer Bundle Course runs over four consecutive days. It comprises two independent courses (CIPP/E + CIPM). We believe that if taken together they form the best fit to prepare for the Data Protection Officer (DPO) position or for attaining an adequate level of privacy & data protection knowledge relevant for your attributions within the organization or as a privacy professional. However, one can easily choose to enroll in only one of these courses.

The training is enhanced through many different business scenarios, as well as practical tools, which you can take home for immediate use on the job.

Each day, a number of useful tips will be given to help you with the exam afterwards.

The IAPP CIPP/E & CIPM course, offered by our specialists in partnership with IAPP, is now available to all the authorities and entities interested through the Romanian Electronic Public Acquisitions System (S.E.A.P.)
