GDPR Ready Training for CIPP/E Certification – 6, 9 October 2021

GDPR Ready training for CIPP/E Certification

IAPP Official Training PartnerMind It, as an IAPP Official Training Partner offers the most encompassing, up-to-date and sought-after global training and certification program for privacy and data protection. The Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP) helps organizations around the world bolster compliance and risk mitigation practices, and arms practitioners with the insight needed to add more value to their businesses.

Skilled privacy pros are in high demand and CIPP certification is what employers want. When you earn an IAPP credential, you earn the right to be recognized as part of an elite group of knowledgeable, capable and dedicated privacy professionals.

With the GDPR effective as of May 2018, among its mandates is the requirement to appoint knowledgeable DPOs (data protection officers) tasked with monitoring compliance, managing internal data protection activities, training data processing staff, conducting internal audits and more. There’s a lot to know, there’s a lot at stake and there’s a lot of opportunity for privacy professionals with the right training and education.

Achieving a CIPP/E credential shows you have the comprehensive GDPR knowledge, perspective and understanding to ensure compliance and data protection success — and to take advantage of the career opportunity this sweeping legislation represents.

CIPP/E Certification

This training is an opportunity to learn about critical privacy concepts that are also integral to the CIPP/E exam. While not purely a ‘test prep’ course, this training is appropriate for professionals who plan to certify, as well for those who want to deepen their data protection knowledge. Both the training and the exam are based on the same body of knowledge.
