Who is this programme for?
There has been a significant increase in the complexity and volume of the regulation underpinning compliance in the area of data protection. As well as a thorough understanding of the regulatory and legislative framework, professional practice in the area of data protection requires judgements and decisions to be made for many scenarios.
The primary motivation underpinning the Professional Certificate in Data Protection is to provide a learning opportunity for compliance and related professions to develop the necessary skills to ensure that their organisations meet their current and future responsibilities in relation to data protection. The programme has been designed in consultation with the office of the Data Protection Commissioner.
