Privacy & Data Protection

Your learning path from beginner to Certified Data Protection Officer

Our Privacy & Data Protection Certification Track is a multi-level, competency-based certification program designed to provide you with the knowledge, skills and credentials you need to become a Data Protection Officer (DPO) under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The program was developed by experienced Data Protection Officers, privacy consultants and privacy lawyers. The certification levels address core competencies required for DPOs as identified based on the GDPR, industry expertise and thorough job analyses.

As you evolve through the certification levels, you will gain an expert’s knowledge of the GDPR and you will learn how to perform a DPO’s tasks. Ultimately, you will become a Certified Data Protection Officer able to implement and maintain a GDPR-compliant data protection program and advise your management on effective data protection practices. Your competency-based certificates will unite you with a select group of privacy professionals and increase your marketability, employability and earning potential.
