CDPP - Certified Data Protection Practitioner 5th-6th/12th -13th/19th -20th October 2021 - Online Delivery

Be confident that your organisation’s policies and procedures are legally compliant with data protection legislation by completing Ireland’s first certified data protection practitioner programme.

Please note: This course will be delivered online over 6 mornings. Time: 9.30am – 1pm

Who should attend

The course is ideally suited to anyone who fulfils an information security or data protection role including secretaries, financial workers, project managers, health sector staff, customer support, etc. If you require a highly detailed overview and analysis of what data protection is, this is the best course of its kind. A data protection assessment is held every month at ICS to give students the chance to achieve the Data Protection Practitioner Certificate qualification.

What you will learn

  • Learn about core data protection principles, types of data (personal,sensitive personal, etc.) and how they fit into current legislation (e.g. The Data Protection Act)
  • The syllabus focuses on how the data protection principles work in practice, and on the promotion of good practice within organisations.
  • You will learn about privacy through real world examples, and what counts as private in today’s world
  • Understand and distinguish between data protection roles (Subject, Controller, Processor), in particular the role of the Data Processor
  • Discover what kinds of circumstances are exempt from data protection legislation
  • Learn what role the Data Protection Commissioner’s Office plays in regulation and enforcement of data protection legislation


Use the knowledge you have gained about data protection legislation to make
influential changes to your organisation’s data protection policies, helping you remain competitive and compliant. This will increase your organisation’s confidence in its ability to protect and manage data. Examine real-life case studies of data breaches, engage in brainstorming sessions and come up with data breach response procedures just as you would in your own organisation.

The course places an emphasis from the outset on providing relatable, real-world
examples to back up any theory delivered during a session. Students are encouraged to provide their own data protection issues, as well, that can be openly discussed by the group.
