Founded in 2000, the IAPP is the world’s largest and most comprehensive privacy resource with a mission to define, support and improve the Privacy profession globally.
“The most appropriate certification for the DPO is a combination of the IAPP’s Certified Information Privacy Professional credential for EU professionals (CIPP/E) and Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM).”
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires that many organisations appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO). The International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) estimates that more than 75,000 DPOs will be required in the coming months. Are you DPO Ready? Whether you are taking your first step of awareness, or are ready for certification as a Data Protection Professional, Columbia is here to help you along the way.
The Data Protection Officer (DPO) Bundle Course runs over four consecutive days, being comprised of two independent courses (CIPP/E + CIPM) or (CIPP/US + CIPM), but when taken together, they form the best fit to prepare for the Data Protection Officer (DPO) position.
The training is seasoned with lots of different business scenarios as well as practical tools you can take for immediate use after training completion.
