Course Content

The Foundations of Privacy and Data Protection is comprised of seven modules.

The seven learning modules are:

  1. Key privacy concepts: Introduces learners to the fundamental roles and concepts of privacy and data protection to help professionals charged with integrating sophisticated information management practices to safeguard personal data, earn customer and stakeholder trust, and meet the business and operational needs of their organizations.
  2. Fair Information Practices (FIPs): Defines the FIPs, explores their origins, examines how they relate to one another to create a framework of data protection, and helps learners interpret them to solve data protection problems in regular work activity.
  3. The Data Life Cycle: Helps learners recognize each phase of the data life cycle, understand how each ties to relevant stakeholder needs and expectations, and identify gaps and propose improvements in data life cycle governance within their professional environments.
  4. Models for Data Protection Legislation: Examines the models for data protection, key differences between the main models, and their comparative advantages and disadvantages.
  5. Major Privacy and Data Protection Law: Provides an overview of major privacy and data protection laws around the world to help learners better understand the evolving data protection landscape and its current state.
  6. Case Studies: Offers real-world examples of companies accused of failing to comply with data protection provisions, as well as those that worked effectively with regulators to protect personal data.
  7. Emerging Technologies: Investigates key emerging topics related to data protection, defines a consistent methodology for examining and reacting to an emerging issue, and explores how to identify relevant components of a new topic, assess it and apply privacy principles.

Intended audience – Who should attend?

This training is appropriate for anyone interested in privacy.

It’s no secret: we need more privacy pros. As legislation is developed, enacted and enforced around the globe, the demand for qualified privacy professionals only grows. Those working in privacy currently enjoy many opportunities to learn and evolve, yet prospective professionals face challenges as they seek to get their start in the industry.

To bridge that gap, the IAPP offers a new course: Foundations of Privacy and Data Protection. This course covers the most fundamental privacy concepts and practices, providing individuals who are interested in privacy as a career with a place to begin, as well as giving organizations the ability to train their teams.
