EU GDPR Practitioner qualification helps people become DPOs, says IT Governance


IT Governance, the leading expert in cyber security and training courses, is encouraging people to achieve the EU GDPR Practitioner (EU GDPR P) qualification in order to fulfil the role of data protection officer (DPO) under the EU General Data Protection Regulation.
The statement follows a recent study published by IAPP, which determined that the GDPR’s global reach will necessitate at least 75,000 data protection officers (DPOs) worldwide. The report also suggests that the United States will need the largest number of DPOs (9,000), followed by China (7,568) and Switzerland (3,682).
IT Governance’s Certified EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Practitioner training course can help develop a comprehensive understanding and the practical skills to fulfil the role of DPO under the GDPR.
Alan Calder, the founder and chief executive officer of IT Governance, says: “The Certified EU GDPR Practitioner training course has been developed by IT Governance’s information security and data protection experts, and is aimed at professionals working in the field of data protection and data privacy who wish to get involved in GDPR compliance projects, achieve a GDPR-relevant qualification and fulfil the role of DPO.”
IT Governance supports professional development. Upon completing the course, delegates will sit a 90-minute multiple-choice exam accredited by IBITGQ. Those who pass the exam are awarded an  EU GDPR Practitioner qualification, which proves that the delegate has the knowledge and skills to help organisations achieve compliance with the GDPR and take on the responsibilities of a DPO.
The Certified EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Practitioner training course covers the GDPR principles, the role of DPO, setting up a privacy compliance framework, data protection impact assessments, data mapping, the role of data processors and controllers, data breach reporting requirements, achieving compliance and many more topics.
Delegates can attend four-day classroom sessions in London, Cambridge, Manchester, Edinburgh and Dublin. Alternatively, to help delegates reduce travel time and cost, IT Governance provides the EU GDPR Practitioner training course in distance learning and Live Online formats for time zones across the UK, US and Europe.
