The CIPT credential shows you’ve got the knowledge to build your organisation’s data protection structures from the ground up. With regulators worldwide calling for tech professionals to factor data protection into their products and services, the job market for privacy-trained IT pros has never been stronger.
Whether you work in the public or private sector, data privacy skills are quickly becoming a must-have—and that’s a great opportunity for you.

All bundles are attractively priced as opposed to two separate training sessions.

GDPR Data Protection Officer bundle

CIPP/E + CIPM

Achieving a CIPM credential shows that you have a comprehensive knowledge of how data protection programmes should work across an organization. Combine with a CIPP/E credential and prove that you not only can manage a data protection programme, but you understand the regulations that govern them.
With a CIPM and CIPP/E combined you’ll be uniquely equipped to fulfill the DPO requirements of the GDPR. The CIPP/E relates to the knowledge a DPO must have concerning the European legal framework of the legislation, and the CIPM provides theoretical aspects necessary to lead an organisation’s data protection policy.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect in 2018. Among its mandates is the requirement to appoint a knowledgeable Data Protection Officer (DPO) 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 data protection professionals with the right training and education.

CIPP/E plus CIPT

This training course is a combination of both the CIPP/E and CIPT certifications. As such it will provide the basis on the how of data protection in Europe as well as the what of data protection and how to implement privacy-by-design and privacy-by-default in your development processes as well as assuring for adequate data security and protection within your organisation.
