Another Successful GDPR Comprehensive.

With our superior programme and first-in-class faculty, of course our IAPP GDPR Comprehensive 2016 was a tremendous success. London delegates spent two full days with world-recognised experts taking a guided tour of this sweeping legislation that’s sure to change how the world treats data protection.

The GDPR requires that many organisations appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO) and, as you likely heard at the conference, we estimate that more than 75,000 will be required in the coming months.

What’s the best way to become a qualified DPO? The combination of the IAPP’s Certified Information Privacy Professional/Europe (CIPP/E) and the Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM).
