Event Details


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.
