With the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) now in effect in Singapore, organisations that manage personal data have to ensure full compliance with the law, or face financial consequences. This calls for a new position in organisations that manage personal data – that of the Data Protection Officer.
This 3-day Hands-on Data Protection Officer Training Programme equips professionals, managers and executives (PMEs) in Singapore with new competencies using a practical approach and borrowing from best practices, showing them how to implement, comply and to stay compliant with the PDPA. It is meant to complement the courses offered by PDPC and:
- Offers a hands-on approach conducted by practitioners who are doing PDPA Audits in organisations.
- Includes Straits Interactive’s Data Protection Management System for DPOs.
- Includes customisable policy templates and privacy/personal data protection notices.
Trainees will be tasked to complete a project based on their own organisational context as part of the programme’s assessment. This will be useful for the attending DPOs to assess their organisations’ current levels of compliance with the PDPA and take the necessary actions to address the relevant gaps and risks. By the time they complete the course, the DPOs would have started their compliance efforts for their respective companies and would have sufficient hands-on experience to continue and complete the project they had started.
The programme lays the practical foundation and competencies necessary for a career in the new era of compliance in personal data protection. Local workers will gain a valuable and niche skill set to increase their mobility and value-add to their companies.
We don’t just train you – we show you how to be compliant, complete with your own Compliance Manual, Audit & all the Tools you need!
…. all done by the time you complete the course!
…. with roadmap to International Certification
