What

Certified Data Protection Officer training and Certified Data Protection Officer course

Become a Certified Data Protection Officer in just 3 days with accelerated data protection officer training from Firebrand. Get your Data Protection Officer qualification at twice the speed and sit the official PECB Certified Data Protection Officer Exam onsite at the Firebrand Training Centre.

On this Certified Data Protection Officer course, you’ll build the skills you need to implement and manage a compliance framework aligned to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This accelerated three-day course will also prepare you for the role of a Data Protection Officer (DPO).

Learn how to adapt your organisation to become GDPR-compliant and implement privacy policies, procedures, working instructions, consent forms and data protection impact assessments.

Key learning objectives for your accelerated Data Protection Officer training are:

  • Building your knowledge of personal data protection history in Europe
  • Developing an in-depth knowledge of approaches and concepts required in effective alignment with GDPR
  • Understanding the new requirements brought by the GDPR for EU and non-EU organisations and when to implement them
  • Learning the skills to support an organisation in implementation and assessment of these new requirements
  • Learning how you manage a team implementing the GDPR
  • Developing the knowledge and skills required to advise your organisation in managing personal data
  • Gaining analysis and decision making expertise in the context of personal data protection

With this accelerated data protection officer training, you'll prepare for and sit the official PECB Certified Data Protection Officer Exam. This is covered by your Certification Guarantee.

  • Members of information security, incident management or business continuity teams
  • Expert advisors in personal data security
  • Technical or compliance experts preparing for a Data Protection Officer role

You must prepare now for GDPR, coming into effect in 2018. GDPR applies to organisations within the EU, as well as all those that handle personal data of EU citizens. There is now a legal requirement that organisations with more than 200 staff employ a full-time Data Protection Officer.

Cut the risk of prosecution in the event of a data breach - breaches of EU regulations by multinationals could result in fines of £20 million or 4% of worldwide gross turnover.
