Become GDPR Ready through four days of in-person classes encompassing key elements of the IAPP's European Data Protection and Privacy Program Management training. IAPP faculty with academic and practice experience teaches the essentials of envisioning, designing and executing a comprehensive privacy management program within GDPR requirements. Classes cover pan-European and national data protection laws, key privacy terminology, and the practical concerns around personal data protection and trans-border data flows. They equip you to monitor compliance, manage internal data protection activities, train data processing staff, conduct internal audits, and more. With the deadline for GDPR compliance looming, companies are searching for DPO candidates with the requisite knowledge and skills. These training programs are based off the body of knowledge for the ANSI/ISO-accredited Certified Information Privacy Professional/Europe (CIPP/E) and Certified Information Privacy Management (CIPM) certifications. CIPP/E and CIPM are recommended as the most appropriate for aspiring DPOs, according to Eric Lachaud in "Should the DPO be certified?" in International Data Privacy Law, a journal published by Oxford University Press.
