European Data Protection


The "what"

Laws and regulations

The CIPP/E shows that you understand the laws, regulations and standards of privacy in your jurisdiction or discipline.

The CIPP/E is for you if you’re responsible for:
  • Legal
  • Compliance
  • Information management
  • Data governance
  • Human Resources

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.
