Our online Privacy Professionals Training program is designed to be suitable for people in professional roles, who need a deeper understanding of, or wish to develop their professional expertise in, one or more aspects of privacy management, privacy law, or privacy topics in practice.
By ‘Privacy Professionals’ we mean people who need to understand and apply privacy law or data protection rules in different situations. This can include not only someone in a designated ‘privacy officer’ role, but also IT project managers, system designers and solution architects, lawyers, audit and risk professionals, and governance and compliance managers.
A comprehensive program of specialised modules
Starting in 2017, we are rolling out a series of specialised modules, which together will create a comprehensive professional development program. The program has three streams:
- Privacy Management
- Privacy Law
- Privacy in Practice
You are able to work through one of the streams module by module, or pick and choose which modules best suit your own professional development needs.
For example, someone new to the Privacy Officer role might want to start with the Privacy Management stream of modules, and work their way through the entire program. An IT project manager or risk officer might want to jump straight to modules 301 and 302 in the Privacy in Practice stream, which cover how to identify and then resolve privacy risks in projects. And a lawyer might want to work their way through the Privacy Law stream.
Each module is fast, interactive and effective
Our training content is carefully crafted by our team of privacy consultants and professional trainers. This is certainly not ‘tick-a-box’ generic compliance training.
And because we are privacy specialists, our content is kept up-to-date with the latest developments in both the law and technology.
Each module features:
- clear explanations, visual aids and an interactive style of eLearning content
- content developed by the market leaders in privacy training and advice
- integrated quizzes to focus attention
- a comprehensive randomised 10-question assessment on completion of each module, to test understanding
- successful participants receive a Certificate of Completion
