FDPPI, Foundation of Data Protection Professionals in India (www.fdppi.in), a Section 8 company of the Data Protection Professionals, By the Data Protection Professionals and For the Data Protection Professionals is all set to continue its efforts in creating the NextGen Data Protection Professionals in India empowered with the knowledge of Indian Data Protection Law along with the key global laws.
Naavi and the 20 year old Cyber Law College which is a pioneer in Cyber Law education in India dedicate their support to the cause of supporting the FDPPI movement.
FDPPI successfully concluded its third certification program on Indian Data protection laws. Any enquiries for further training and certification of this module may be sent to us to enable further planning.
FDPPI is now gearing up for the next Certification of Module G which will commence from July 11th. We expect that the knowledge of some of the international data protection laws such as GDPR, CCPA, Singapore PDPA, DIFC DPL 2020 and HIPAA which will be covered in this module will help enhance the knowledge level of the Data Protection Professionals who will be certified by FDPPI.
FDPPI believes that every certification should be backed by an incremental knowledge accretion and hence training is made part of the certification program. At the same time by keeping the fees for training and certification afforadable, FDPPI wants to take the knowledge to a larger number of professionals many of whom may be entering the Privacy and Data Protection Professionals for the first time.
One such person commented for the earlier certification program
“Great content and the questions are of international standards. Thoroughly based on understanding and not on rote system. Spending time on the materials is the key.”
We may recall that one of the objectives of FDPPI is to bring together Legal Professionals, IT Professionals, and others who work in different capacities in the Data Protection domain on this platform so that there is a better understanding and harmony between these different types of professionals. To some extent this is getting reflected in the profile of people who are taking the Certification program.
In the same spirit the next Module on Global laws will create a reasonable knowledge of how different countries have approached the data protection regulation , their relative strengths, weaknesses, the commonalities and differences.
We hope that this knowledge along with Module I will make a powerful combination of knowledge that empowers the next generation of data protection professionals in India.
Cyber Law College which had earlier conducted certification programs on Cyber Laws for SriLanka, Malaysia and Mauritius in a sporadic manner based on requests, will continue to open new avenues of training on global data protection laws and ensure.
