Course Overview

The Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM) is the world’s first and only certification in privacy programme management. When you earn a CIPM, it shows that you know how to make a privacy programme work for your organisation. In other words, you’re the go-to person for day-to-day operations when it comes to data protection.

The CIPM programme was developed by the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), which is the world’s largest comprehensive global information privacy community and resource. The CIPM certification also holds accreditation under ISO 17024: 2012.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) took effect om 25th May 2018. 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.

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.

This workshop also looks at the key overarching compliance theme and offers insights into the important challenge that all organisation face, i.e. the relationship with the regulatory (National Data Protection Authority). The course will explain how businesses and organisations can develop a constructive relationship with the data protection regulators in light of the GDPR provisions but also offer and analyse practical insights, case studies and best practices on how to address this crucial area of compliance in order to avoid compliance issues and penalties. Furthermore, it will explore how organisations can ensure that their engagement with, and respect for, proper data protection and information rights is evidenced. The course will also consider how an organisation can develop a constructive relationship with the regulator by: ensuring that the building blocks of good information governance are in place; providing helpful input on proposals for change, and seeking to demonstrate a positive and helpful attitude when things go wrong.
