Frustrated man

Unsure of which IAPP course fits your needs?

Selecting the right IAPP course can be a daunting task if you are not familiar with the broadness of privacy and data protection. Often perceived as a legal issue, it may appear obvious to select one of the CIPP courses we offer: European Data Protection (CIPP/E) or US Private-Sector Privacy (CIPP/US).

What's less obvious are IAPP's other courses, Privacy in Technology (CIPT) and Privacy Program Management (CIPM).

To understand the scope of each IAPP course, the Body of Knowledge (BoK) is a valuable document. You can view the respective BoKs here:

A couple of years ago IAPP  produced a number of Functional Area Knowledge Maps that can be used to map common organisational roles to specific knowledge areas. These are valuable when conducting training needs analysis for your employees. You can access PDF versions of the maps here:

Finally, if you're still unsure of which course to take, feel free to book a call to discuss your training needs.
