Certified Data Protection & Privacy Officer (CDPPO) Training

DataLaws Courses (Data Protection & Privacy Training & Capacity Builders)

The enactment of data protection laws has led to a number of mandatory requirements for data controllers and processors.

One of such requirements is the need to perform a data protection impact assessment (DPIA) where the processing of such data could lead to high risks to data subjects.

Recognising that this requirement will necessitate individuals having to implement DPIA’s and that there is a need to upskill persons to assist their organisations to implement DPIA’S. DataLaws Training has designed a 2 Day DPIA course which provides delegates with the knowledge and skills to implement a DPIA process.

The course has been designed to help delegates recognise when a DPIA is required, and how to identify data protection and privacy related risks.

This 2-day course is divided into a 1-day theoretical session providing delegates with information about;

  • what a DPIA is,
  • the steps to conducting a DPIA,
  • stakeholders involved in the DPIA process,
  • identifying risks,
  • privacy screening question thresholds and
  • templates used for DPIA’s.

The second day comprises a workshop on how to conduct a DPIA and embedding the process into an organisation.

Delegates will be walked through a number of DPIA case studies, objective of which will be to align and apply what they have been taught from the day 1 session with a real DPIA.

They will also be provided with advice on how to embed a DPIA process and procedure into their organisations.

The past 3 years has seen many African Countries enact data protection and privacy laws.

Many of these new laws make it mandatory for data controllers and processors to employ data protection officers.

There is a dire shortage of African Data Protection Officers for these countries.

Training offered has mainly been EU GDPR centric rather than African country law specific.

DataLaws Training introduces African country centric Data Protection and Privacy related courses for individuals who are or want to become African data protection and privacy specialists.

Our flagship CDPPO course allows delegates understand the role of a data protection and privacy officer/information officer.

Our CDPPO course has been designed by a leading consultant Data Protection Officer who has over 25 years global experience in data protection, privacy and cybersecurity.
