With the ever-increasing explosion of information flooding the internet, every company needs to plan how to manage and protect privacy of persons and their data. Not without a reason, many new laws – in the EU as well as in the USA and many other regions – are being formed to regulate both.
In the EU the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is already in force, meaning that all organizations concerned need to comply with specific rules. The EXIN practitioner certificate builds on the subjects covered by the Foundation certification by focusing on the development and implementation of policies and procedures to comply with existing and new legislation, application of privacy and data protection guidelines and best practices, and by establishing a Privacy organization and Data Protection Management System.
EXIN Privacy and Data Protection Practitioner is an advanced-level certification that validates a professional’s knowledge and understanding of the European privacy (data protection) legislation. The exam looks at the international relevance of these regulations and tests the individual’s ability to apply this knowledge and understanding in everyday professional practice.
The course sessions will include:
This programme may be approved for up to 21 CPD units in GDPR. Eligibility criteria and CPD Units are verified directly by your association, regulator or other bodies which you hold membership.
Who Should Attend
EXIN Privacy & Data Protection Practitioner is ideal for: Data Protection Officers (DPOs), Privacy Officers, Legal / Compliance Officers, Security Officers, Business Continuity Managers, Data Controllers, Data Protection Auditors (internal and external) and HR managers.
As this is an advanced-level certification, it is advisable to have passed EXIN Privacy and Data Protection Foundation or have attended other similar type of courses or certifications before taking this exam.
Participants will receive a certificate of attendance by EIMF without sitting the relevant EXIN examinations – the exam is optional
