IAPP Certified Information Privacy Professional / Europe (CIPP/E) ONLINE

Course Description

Instructor led on-line training sessions plus access to exclusive additional resources to help you prepare for the CIPP/E Exam

Our online privacy training program is a robust, interactive way to learn the critical privacy concepts that are integral to the Certified Information Privacy Professional Europe (CIPP/E) certification exam.

What is the iapp CIPP/E?

Developed in collaboration with the law firms, Bird and Bird, Field Fisher, Wilson/Sonsini and Covington and Burling, the CIPP/E encompasses pan-European and national data protection laws, key privacy terminology and practical concepts concerning the protection of personal data and trans-border data flows.

With the power of ANSI/ISO accreditation behind it, a CIPP/E credential elevates your professional profile by deepening your knowledge and improving your job effectiveness. We constantly update our certification exams, textbooks and training to reflect the latest advances in privacy. The CIPP/E includes critical topics like the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and the GDPR.

Our CIPP/E Online Training

Delivered over three (3) full day sessions, including a special exam prep session, our on-line training provides the opportunity of instructor led learning as part of a group, accessible from anywhere.

Are You GDPR-Ready?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has taken effect on May 25th 2018, are you ready for it? 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.

We recommend taking the CIPM in addition to the CIPP/E.

Achieving a CIPM credential shows that you have a comprehensive knowledge of how data protection programmes should work across an organization. Add 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 fulfil 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.
