Achieving a CIPM credential shows that you have a comprehensive knowledge of how data protection programmes should work across an organization. Combine with a CIPP/E credential and prove that you not only can manage a data protection programme, but you understand the regulations that govern them.
With a CIPP/E and CIPM combined youâ€™ll be uniquely equipped to fulfill 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 organisationâ€™s data protection policy.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect in 2018. 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. Thereâ€™s a lot to know, thereâ€™s a lot at stake and thereâ€™s a lot of opportunity for data protection professionals with the right training and education.
