OUR NEW ONLINE CIPM TRAINING COURSE - 6 x 3-hour instructor led on-line training sessions

Our new online privacy training class is a robust, interactive way to learn the critical privacy concepts that are integral to the Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM) certification exam.  Delivered over six (6) separate 3-hour sessions our on-line training provides the opportunity of instructor led learning as part of a group accessible from anywhere in Australia.  

Training is appropriate for professionals who plan to certify, as well for those who want to deepen their privacy knowledge. This training in not just a test prep course, nor does taking training guarantee you’ll pass your exam (hey, it’s not that easy).

The CIPM is the world’s first and only certification in privacy programme management. When you earn a CIPM, it shows that you know how to make a privacy programme work for your organisation. In other words, you’re the go-to person for day-to-day operations when it comes to data protection.

The CIPM program was developed by the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), which is the world’s largest comprehensive global information privacy community and resource. The CIPM certification also holds accreditation under ISO 17024: 2012.

Privacy Program Management is the how-to training on implementing a privacy program framework, managing the privacy program operational lifecycle and structuring a knowledgeable, high performing privacy team. Those taking this course will learn the skills to manage privacy in an organisation through process and technology - regardless of jurisdiction or industry.

Are you GDPR-ready?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has taken effect on May 25th 2018, are you ready for it? 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. There’s a lot to know, there’s a lot at stake and there’s a lot of opportunity for data protection professionals with the right training and education.

Achieving a CIPM credential shows that you have a comprehensive knowledge of how data protection programmes should work across an organization. Add 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 CIPM and CIPP/E combined you’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 organisation’s data protection policy.

WE RECOMMEND: Also doing the Certified Information Privacy Professional - Europe (CIPP/E) 2 day or online course.
