This is the first time I am attending a course like this, so I have no standard to compare with, I can only say it is more than I expect and overall it is good. I do think the instructors are experts in what they teach. What I like best is the summary of all that went on in the class and all on one two sided page and it helps a great deal in terms of studies and exam.

The online training was good. Convenient and comfy to attend class at home. The online workshop allows me to interact with international participants. We get to learn about different backgrounds and cultures.


In the online training, Celine is very clear in her explanation and uses a lot of real scenarios to help us understand the various concepts and framework. She even comes out with a mind map to help the participants in exam preparation. The course is very relevant especially the trainers used local and overseas examples to illustrate various concepts. Thanks so much for the tips in exam preparation. They are definitely very very useful.

My first time having online training, glad that is still great. Having a basic foundation of PDPA helped me to understand the CIPM course. The instructors were clear and concise and gave us scenarios to help us understand.

The training is very relevant and information-filled. The workshop gives a step by step guide. I learned the steps that I need to do for my organization's data privacy program. Given the rise of data privacy awareness in people and organization, this workshop is a must have for all.

Course Participant - November 2020

It’s applicable because it forms up a very good picture for me. I have been in banking for many years and exposed to many parts of it but with this class, I really see the connector.

Course Participant - Jan 2015

The certification will actually help us to come up with new solutions that we can provide to the customers. And secondly it will also build credibility so that when a customer talks to us, at least we can tell them that we are certified to do this.

Course Participant - Jan 2015

Very complete and informative. The case studies really help.

Edmund Koh

Content was well presented in terms of not only clarity but how the different parts of the content are interconnected & the interlinks for a good overall flow!! The case studies on the 3rd day were most useful to crystallise the principles but also to show how practical & relevant. Presenters were very knowledgeable and also very hands-on with their direct experience. They show expertise in their substance.

Peter Chua

Instructor is very well-versed in delivering the training; made the training very interesting and fun. Provided many useful notes.

Course Participant - January 2019

Relevant, precise and straight to the core for both theory and practical parts including role plays & group discussions involved. It was very fun and the trainers were friendly, proactive and engaging with the participants.

Very well organised and structured, classified into manageable portions.

Course Participant - January 2019

A very comprehensive training that was well coordinated and planned. I learnt there is a need to have a data privacy framework, baseline and metrics as well as audit/monitoring to show progress.

Helen Tiu

It was a wonderful 3-day training with a wealth of information provided in preparation for the certification exam. It is also good that we have been provided a mind map to prepare for the exam. That will definitely help me prepare for it. What I have learnt - CUDS-GAPSR. These provide already a general context of CIPM. Everything else is details.

Leo Rey Almero
Counsel and DPO

I enjoy online session more than in class session because the course is 3 days long. Online session allows me to do occasional stretching in the privacy of my home. I learnt that there are a lot of methods and process to develop privacy management programme, the acronym given helps a lot.

Jacinta Yeong

It was well planned and content was easy to understand. CIPM focuses on application of privacy into organisations and it is very different from other courses which taught about the theories and the obligations. It allows us to learn how to communicate to higher management in a language they understand.

Course Participant - September 2020

It was fulfilling and a fun learning experience. Very worth it to have enrolled to this course and invest. I love how much knowledge I have obtained in this workshop even if I'm on an online setting. Very relevant especially to my situation as a Compliance Officer for Privacy (COP) in which I could help our DPO to implement and test the efficiency of our Privacy Program deployed in the organization.

Course Participant - November 2020

Very informative and very well presented with constant reference to key concepts.

Paul Seow

The online 3 days CIPM course was very informative and lively with many real case studies and scenarios for us to relate to our materials. The course outline via mindmap notes really good!

Course Participant - November 2020

Attending the online CIPM training during this crisis is truly a breather. While fully delivered online, the training was interactive. I appreciate the most. Kevin's effort to engage everyone to participate in the discussions. Also, the sharing of thoughts among attendees adds value to the course.

Course Participant - June 2020

I perused several companies who provide similar workshops. After the course, I am convinced that I have correctly chosen to enroll with Straits. The team seems cohesive and works well together in providing the well-organized and structured workshop. One can tell the effort that went into the course. Every member of the team from the instructors to the guest speakers provided valuable inputs. Waimun was also responsive to my inquiries prior to enrolling in the course which was appreciated.

Angela de Guzman
Business Immigration Manager

I thought the program was well conducted. Very engaging with real-life cases.

Course Participant - September 2020

Very experienced and qualified resource persons. I learnt how I should operationalize privacy and that it is beyond legal compliance.

Rex Celiz
Legal & Corporate Governance

I felt that the online experience was very good. Almost at good as face to face class. What was good was the ability to poll feedback and get answers to questions. The online breakout sessions as well as discussion were also useful.

Course Participant - September 2020

Very good experience. The course was conducted in a very interactive manner which allowed participants to stay focused and follow the training even if thousands of kilometres away from the trainer. I now have a better understanding on the Data Privacy Framework, mostly the Governance part which is well structured under CIPM. The topics discussed were totally relevant with the body of knowledge and enables better understanding on expectations for the exams.

Vikash Lalsing
Director - Ascentrix Consulting Ltd - Mauritius

I have gained very practical and comprehensive knowledge on how to create a data privacy program for my organisation. Participation and interactions by the classmates also help to bring the subject matter alive and not just purely on theory.

Phoebe Chow
Data Protection Officer and Regional Compliance Officer

Fantastic online experience. Very enriching and in depth lively discussion. One thing I learnt was the GDPR impact. The course was well run and nicely spaced out. Trainers were very knowledgeable and fantastic in presentation

Louis Tan

It was great. The trainers are very knowledgeable and very accommodating. Considering that I used to lead privacy compliance projects before and am now occupying the position of a DPO, the insights they've shared will be very valuable in my own work. I liked the very practical approach to the course. It doesn't just prepare you for the exam. It also provides you with practical guidance on how to apply what you've learned to your own organization.

Roberto Miguel O. Raneses
Data Protection Officer

The training offered many real-life scenarios and invited participants to share from their varied backgrounds (e.g. information security, legal, compliance etc). I found it very useful and practical for my learning.

Course Participant - June 2020

Workshop is highly engaging. Trainers are knowledgeable and participants are enthusiastic.

Andrew Loh

The course, delivery and speakers are great. As a consultant, this course has taught me to structure the implementation and management of Data Privacy Program.

Jane Barrido
Managing Director

As an employee involved in an industry handling various personal data, the workshop has made PRIVACY and SECURITY easier to understand in every angle.

Marvela Gaffud
Compliance Officer of Privacy

The online experience was overall good. I learnt a lot, particularly privacy by design. The workshop was well designed with all the tips and approaches and a mind map geared towards the exam and with trainers, particularly Celine, reminding us which sections are relevant and giving it extra attention for exam purposes. It was also great to hear the course participants and trainers who shared their practical experience and that is additional to the exam preparation, an understanding of how it is like in the real world.

Course Participant - August 2020

The online training was overall very good and well organised. Because I am new to this area (job not related to data protection), all the information shared in the class was very helpful. It started from basic to in depth, easy to follow. The trainer’s way of teaching was very clear and easy to understand.

Course Participant - August 2020

The online training experience was excellent. The energy and interaction was exceptional. Where did the presenters find that energy for online training? Really exceptional. The response to some minor technical issues was swift. To quote U2, even better than the real thing. One thing I learnt was privacy management is multidimensional, dynamic and complex.

Padraig Walsh
Partner, Tanner De Witt

The online experience has been great. I was still able to participate in discussion just like in a face to face (F2F) session.The APSR guides me the process needed for DPO to do their work for the what, when, who and how.

Course Participant - September 2020

The course was very informative and provided step to step guidance on privacy management. Kevin provided a lot of insights and real life case scenarios. It really was very helpful to provide a better understanding throughout the course. Thank you Kevin!

Angela Ong
Associate Compliance Specialist

The course was well organized and relevant to preparation for the exam. It was a good experience attending online with a good run through of the CIPM course material & guideline.

Francis Yeo
Associate Career Coach, e2i

Awesome experience!! It was well administered and all the trainers coordinated very well. One thing I learnt from the class was how to apply the concepts of G-A-P-S-R in different scenarios. The complete session was very interactive.

Course Participant - February 2021

It has been a great experience for me attending this course. A lot of good information and experience sharing albeit intensive. I have learnt the basic framework of privacy management i.e. CUDS and GAPSR.

Course Participant - February 2021

Excellent logistics & superb virtual support from the trainers & Wai Mun. Prompt, customer service oriented. In this age of hybrid learning, trainers not only must bring with them industry relevance, technical knowledge, teaching experience but facilitating skills for other like-minded professionals are equally important. And that sums up the winning formula for this CIPM training course! Well done, team! Fantastic chemistry amongst the trainer & support team. Injecting a great sense of humor into an otherwise content-packed course.

Lee Chooi Hur
Director, Compliance

The experience for the online training was smooth overall. One thing I learnt from the class was about privacy program management. I like the teaching approach where a lot of info was covered while the emphases were revisited several times to cement the knowledge. The learning atmosphere was beyond my expectation. I've become aware of gaps and action items my team has to do. I'm now more confident in convincing the stakeholders on how to run the data protection program in my organisation.

Course Participant - February 2021

The online experience is convenient to people working from home like me. There are really a lot of take away lessons with regards to privacy but I like above all the " be nice to your colleagues" best. (=. The workshop was relevant, very exciting and a brain breaker in a good way. Trainers were lively and very informative. A great team you have. Thank you!

Head, Privacy Incident Management

The online training experience was excellent. Great that we are also able to get participants from other countries to join as it gives a wider perspective. I learnt that I need to bear in mind the different applicable laws when looking at cross border data flows and it is important to rationalise what is relevant. The workshop had a very thorough explanation of concepts coupled with examples to illustrate these. It gives a great framework to understand data privacy management and also to take the IAPP exam. Having 3 instructors in the course helped to provide a great coverage of the topics as they complement the discussion and delivery of the content.

Voo Chih Yeong

The course was good, very helpful and relevant as I could link it to my practical work space. I learnt the importance of the privacy and Privacy Framework to implement in the organization. Kevin and the team were very helpful and addressed all the concerns and queries I had in the course.

Suman Lama

The online course was very engaging and structured in the delivery of messages. Often reinforcing the key models etc. One thing I learnt was how to do my Privacy role with more knowledge and understanding of the requirements to meet our organization's objectives aka vision and mission.

Adeline Ng
Senior Specialist, Data Privacy

It was very interactive though it was held online. Though I think the offline classes would be so much better so no work can distract me from the session. One thing I have learnt is how to implement the rules in our company's operational activities. I have been doing update sessions for my data privacy KPI and before the training it was quite confusing. Now that I have done my training, I kinda get the idea how I should fulfill the KPI and implement the rules in the best possible way. I really love how Kevin explained things during the sessions. It was very helpful for understanding how to implement the rules in daily operations activities.

Legal Manager, Aspirasi Indonesia

The instructor was very friendly and gave a lot of helpful information that was actually usable for the exam and also my BAU (Business As Usual). Kudos to Kevin and the SI team! One thing I have learnt is the intricacies of GDPR and how to manage compliance to it effectively. This is a really awesome workshop in which the content is actually relevant. Not a lot of workshops can do this. Keep up the awesome work Kevin and SI team!


My online experience of the training was very good.The acronyms of CUDS and GAPSR were awesome as it allowed me to park the items in a logical manner.

Head of Ethics & Privacy

This course helped me to put everything that I know about data protection into perspective.
