Upcoming Training Dates


Developed in collaboration with the law firms, Bird and Bird, Field Fisher, Wilson/Sonsini and Covington and Burling, the CIPP/E encompasses pan-European and national data protection laws, key privacy terminology and practical concepts concerning the protection of personal data and trans-border data flows.

With the power of ANSI/ISO accreditation behind it, a CIPP/E credential elevates your professional profile by deepening your knowledge and improving your job effectiveness. We constantly update our certification exams, textbooks and training to reflect the latest advances in privacy. The CIPP/E includes critical topics like the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and the GDPR.

GDPR training? The IAPP is the place.

When the GPPR takes effect in 2018, among its mandates is the requirement to appoint knowledgeable DPOs (data protection officers) tasked with monitoring compliance, managing internal data protection activities, training data processing staff, conducting internal audits and more. There’s a lot to know, there’s a lot at stake and there’s a lot of opportunity for privacy professionals with the right training and education.

Achieving a CIPP/E credential shows you have the comprehensive GDPR knowledge, perspective and understanding to ensure compliance and data protection success in Europe—and to take advantage of the career opportunity this sweeping legislation represents.

Add a CIPM credential to the CIPP/E and you’ll be uniquely equipped to fulfil the DPO requirements of the GDPR. The CIPP/E relates to the knowledge a DPO must have concerning the European legal framework of the legislation, and the CIPM the theoretical aspects necessary to lead an organisation’s data protection efforts.



  • Introduction to European Data Protection
  • European Regulatory Institutions
  • Legislative Framework
  • Compliance with European Data Protection Law and Regulation
  • International Data Transfers


The CIPP/E body of knowledge outlines all the concepts and topics that you need to know to become certified. It also has an exam blueprint that indicates how many questions from each topic area you can expect on the exam.

The CIPP/E workshop is very useful and relevant. Instructors are equipped with the expertise to put knowledge into context. Glad to have attended the workshop in person. Wouldn’t have been able to grasp it just by reading the book alone.


The combination of two perspectives was great. Both legal & operational aspects were successfully blended into an understandable synopsis fit for everyone. Instructors were very passionate.

I like how the workshop was conducted!
