BCS Practitioner Certificate in Data Protection

This course is a comprehensive 5 day course that explores the nature of privacy and its relevance to today’s society.

The BCS Certificate in Data Protection provides an entry point qualification for those with data protection responsibilities. It provides an effective conversion route for those needing to update their knowledge of and practice under the 1998 Data Protection Act. Similarly, for those who have passed the DPA format of the Practitioner course, a shorter GDPR Update is available.

Knowledge of UK data protection law, and an understanding of how it is applied in practice,is important for any organisation holding personal data. The BCS Practitioner Certificate in Data Protection is designed for those with some data protection responsibilities in an organisation or who, for other reasons, wish to achieve and demonstrate a broad understanding of the law, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the UK Data Protection Bill and their practical application. It is recognised that those with overall responsibility for data protection within an organisation will need to develop a detailed understanding of the law, including those provisions which are not covered in the syllabus.

Certified Information Privacy Manager

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect in 2018, are you ready for it? 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 programs should work across an organization.

Certified Information Privacy Professional/Europe

Add a CIPP/E credential and prove that you not only can manage a data protection program, but you understand the regulations that govern them. With a CIPM and CIPP/E combined you’ll be uniquely equipped to fulfil the DPO requirements of the GDPR. The CIPP/E relates to the knowledge a DPO must have concerning the European legal framework of the legislation, and the CIPM provides theoretical aspects necessary to lead an organization’s data protection policy.
