Thinking about enhancing your data protection competencies?
Whether you are starting from scratch or formally trained, the Data Protection Excellence (DPEX) network offers a roadmap of courses that will cater to various data protection needs.
These workshops cover not only the “what” of the local data protection law but also the “how” to comply as well, which is not often addressed by many such courses. Upon completion of the course, you will get a Proficiency in Data Protection and GRC (Governance, Risk Management and Compliance) awarded by OCEG.
OCEG is a nonprofit think tank that invented the concept of Principled Performance and GRC to solve age-old organisational problems. It is dedicated to achieving a world where every organisation and every person strives to achieve objectives, address uncertainty and act with integrity.
This course (available in Singapore, Philippines, Malaysia and Thailand) gives you 3 different roadmaps:

Founded in 2000, the IAPP is a not-for-profit organisation that helps define, support and improve the privacy profession globally. The IAPP certification is recognised worldwide by regulators and is the benchmark certification for data privacy professionals.
