Programme Overview

PAI’s Advanced Data Protection Officer programme offers learners a pathway to an accredited Data Protection Officer Certification.

Building upon our Level 1 award, the Advanced programme is essential for all Data Protection professionals and moves from basic principles and protocols to assessing how Data Protection rules are evolving internationally in line with EU Data Protection Regulation and a new focus on Internal Data Governance, increased penalties, and an emphasis on managing and mitigating risks of poor privacy outcomes for individuals.

Who should attend?

This programme presents a coherent framework for Data Protection Officers to understand how their roles align with Data Governance, Information Quality, and the existing frameworks and disciplines which can be used to develop robust and evidence based Data Privacy Governance in your organization.

The Programme syllabus assumes a level of prior knowledge of Data Protection laws and is aimed at supplementing knowledge of legal rules with frameworks and methods for Information management to meet or exceed legal requirements.
