Why CIPP/E and Why should I care about GDPR?

  • Companies whose clients are EU companies. Your EU customers, to protect themselves and to exercise proper due diligence, will demand that its vendors / data processors demonstrate ability in GDPR compliance
  • Individuals who are appointed Data Protection Officer (DPO) in companies that serve EU customers
  •  GDPR is a “gold standard” which most country referenced and based on in enacting or enhancing their data privacy laws.
  • GDPR can be used as a framework to harmonise data protection policies and practices across different countries where the company operates, especially in countries whose data privacy laws are lacking
  • CIPM plus CIPP/E is a unique credential that you are equipped to fulfill the DPO role guiding and your company in GDPR compliance and implementation.
