Foundation of Data Protection Professionals in India (FDPPI) a premier Data Protection organization in India has been conducting a program for Certification of Data Protection Professionals in India.
Currently the training program was being conducted on the basis of Indian law in the form of draft DPDPB 2022.
With the passage of the Bill and the Presidential assent on 11th August 2023, the Bill has now become an Act.
FDPPI has therefore revised its curriculum for the Course. But the Courses will continue to be conducted in three modules, Module I on Indian law, Module G on Global Laws and Module A on Audit skills.
Module I is being completely revamped and also expanded. One of the batches of this course will be commencing shortly. The Module G will not change for the time being. Module A is being revamped to cover the Audit requirements more extensively under PDPCSI framework.
FDPPI’s Certification program includes an in-depth discussion on the Indian Law, GDPR, CCPA, HIPAA, DIFC-DPL and Singapore data protection law to provide a firm foundation in Data Protection laws across the globe for the participants.
Additionally the CDPP program discusses an exclusive Personal Data Protection Compliance Framework for Indian Corporates from the perspective of implementation for compliance and certifiable audit. The framework based on the Digital Governance and Protection Standard of India (DGPSI) is a framework of 50 implementation specifications and leads to an evaluation of Data Trust Score (DTS) as a reflection of the compliance maturity of an organization.
Currently Module I and Module G are provided on recorded mode. Module A is offered as online version.
Users can take the recorded sessions at their convenience. They will be supported by mentoring sessions to be scheduled on mutual appointment.
In terms of the coverage, FDPPI programs stand at a different footing compared to any other Privacy related programs.
