SECO Institute's Privacy & Data Protection Certification Track is a multi-level, competency-based certification program designed to provide you with the knowledge, skills and credentials you need to become a Data Protection Officer (DPO) under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The program was developed by experienced Data Protection Officers, privacy consultants and privacy lawyers. The certification levels address core competencies required for DPOs as identified based on the GDPR, industry expertise and thorough job analyses.
As you evolve through the certification levels, you will gain an expert’s knowledge of the GDPR and you will learn how to perform a DPO’s tasks. Ultimately, you will become a Certified Data Protection Officer able to implement and maintain a GDPR-compliant data protection program and advise your management on effective data protection practices. Your competency-based certificates will unite you with a select group of privacy professionals and increase your marketability, employability and earning potential.
PRIVACY & DATA PROTECTION CERTIFICATION PATH
From Foundation to Expert, each certification level comprises a practice-oriented training course and a certification exam.
Each certification exam tests the knowledge and industry-established competencies covered in the corresponding course.
