Course Syllabus

The DPO position is a new professional role, and to meet the growing demand for DPOs IT Governance has created the Certified Data Protection Officer (C-DPO), a designation awarded to candidates who have successfully demonstrated their expertise in this field. This is done by passing the IBITGQ C-DPO examination, detailing DPO work experience and accrual of relevant CPD learning hours.

Learning Outcomes

The GDPR does not specify the precise credentials a DPO is expected to have. However, in its published guidelines the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) defines certain minimum requirements regarding the DPO’s expertise and skills: Level of expertise – understanding how to build, implement and manage data protection programmes is essential. The more complex or high-risk the data processing activities are, the greater the expertise the DPO will need. Professional qualities – DPOs do not have to be lawyers, but they must have expertise in national and European data protection law. DPOs must also have a reasonable understanding of the organisation’s technical and organisational structure and be familiar with information technologies and data security

The Foundation level certificate (CDPO-F) is targeted at individuals entering the data protection profession, or non-data protection professionals transitioning into the DPO role. There are no formal entry requirements.
