CIPP/E – Certified Information Privacy Professional Europe


European data protection includes the essential pan-European and national privacy laws and industry best practices for companies to comply with these laws. Those attending this course will gain an understanding of the European privacy enforcement model, the main terminology for data protection and practical concepts for the protection of personal data and cross-border data flows.

This training is a robust, interactive opportunity to learn about critical privacy concepts that are also integral to the CIPP/E exam. While not purely a “test prep” course, this training is appropriate for professionals who plan to certify, as well for those who want to deepen their data protection knowledge. Both the training and the exam are based on the same body of knowledge.
