FDPPI successfully completed the first course on PDPA which was conducted by Cyber Law College and Naavi, over 12 sessions spread over 6 week ends. The examination would be conducted in the next two weeks and certificates will be issued from FDPPI.
Cyber Law College was responsible for the training while FDPPI will take care of the certification.
The program which was covered in a total of 18 hours was well received and has been considered as a certificate titled “Certified Data Protection Officer” (Level I).
Cyber Law College has already planned further modules of the program which will be rolled out in due course as Level II, Level III, Level IV and Level V.
Level II will be conducted after the regulations come in force. Level III and IV would be covering the Technical and other skill sets that would be required for a DPO. Level V will incorporate a training on other international privacy protection laws.
Following this program plans are being made for offline programs. FDPPI also offers complimentary program for the Directors of any company on the impact of PDPA, which is conceived as a 45 minute interaction. This will be conducted on invitation so that the knowledge of PDPA is spread among the stake holders.
