DPO- Data Protection Officer Certification

Tsaaro Academy has developed a practical course for the training of aspiring data protection officers, compliance officers, in-house counsels, budding lawyers, and anyone looking forward to working in the domain of data protection. This holistic course will ladder up from basic regulatory requirements under Data Protection Bill, 2021 (DPB) , General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), UAE’s Data Protection law, Kenya’s DPA  and other international regulations to a hands-on experience in data protection compliance programs.

Organizations need to protect their data more and more as data protection becomes increasingly significant. Not following data protection standards can result in unsafe scenarios that could undermine an organization’s credibility, reputation, and financial situation in addition to breaching people’s fundamental rights and freedoms. This is where your data protection officer abilities come in handy, and our DPO certification online is exactly what you need.

Tsaaro Academy has created a realistic data protection officer course (DPO). This comprehensive data protection officer course (DPO) will progress from the fundamental legal requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Data Protection Law of the United Arab Emirates, the Data Protection Act of Kenya, and other international laws to a practical experience in data protection compliance.

Data mapping, important internal or external policy considerations, the practical application of Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIAs), handling personal data breach and incident response, dealing with Data Subject Access Requests (DSARs), evaluating vendors, requirements for international data transfers, and documentation are all covered in this certified DPO course.
