Cyber Law College launches Training on Data Protection Audit

Cyber Law College has earlier launched two programs related to building legal awareness on Data Protection Laws connected with the “Certified Data Protection Professional ” (CDPP) course. These were part of the larger 5 Module course to build  360 degree skilled Data Protection Professionals in India. The remaining three modules were one on Technology, Audit and Behavioural skills.

The training for Module-I covered Indian Data Protection laws and training on Module G covered the global data protection laws.

Now Cyber Law College is launching the course on the Audit Module, namely Module-A.

During this program  scheduled as a 12 hour online program, the Art and Science of Data Audit would be discussed. Since this is the first such program which is being conducted and introduces many new concepts including Valuation of Data in a Balance Sheet, Distributed Responsibility for implementation, etc., there is a possibility that the program may be extended beyond 12 hours if required.

The discussions will cover the conceptual difference between an “Assessment” and “Audit”, different types of audits that one encounters in the Data Protection profession , the objectives of each of these audits, the modalities of how a practitioner may conduct such audits etc.

The Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA), Harm Audit, Data Breach Audit and Data Protection compliance audits will be discussed separately.

The Data Trust Score (DTS) Assessment which is a part of the Indian data protection regulation will also be discussed in detail.

The Data Protection Compliance audit will be explored in detail using the PDPSI (Personal Data Protection Standard of India) framework .

PDPSI is a framework for implementation and is also a Certifiable Standard of compliance. PDPSI is also a DTS assessment framework during the Audit process.

Foundation of Data Protection Professionals in India (FDPPI) is sponsoring the Data Protection Compliance audit under the PDPSI framework and this training is considered part of the accreditation of PDPSI Consultants and PDPSI Auditors who can provide consultancy to organizations on designing and implementation of Data Protection compliance programs as also to conduct Audits of such programs.

Consultation for implementation and Audit of the implementation will be undertaken by two different individuals. While this Data Audit training may be considered mandatory for the Audit, implementation may be guided by the consultants. Organizations are open to implement the guidelines on their own and directly approach an auditor for Certification or take the assistance of consultants before approaching the auditors.

FDPPI may have additional criteria for accrediting auditors under their approved audit process for certification.

This Module-A training would be followed by an “Online Examination” and “Submission of Assignments”. 50% of the marks would be allocated for each of these two evaluation segments.

There will be three grades namely  A, B And C.

Grade A: represents ready for Audit

Grade B: represents ready for Consultancy

Grade C: represents requirement of improvement

One Improvement re-examination will be permitted for upgradation of Grade C to Grade B.

According to the present scheme for accreditation of PDPSI Auditors,

FDPPI may accredit their members who pass out of this training with Grade A and have also passed out of the Module I and Module G program, as “Provisionally Accredited PDPSI Auditors”.

They may be upgraded into fully “Accredited PDPSI Auditors” after they complete the two other modules of the larger training program which includes the modules on Technology and Behavioural Skills.

FDPPI may  also upgrade Persons who pass out of the program in Grade B  “Provisionally Accredited PDPSI Auditors” based on their consultancy experience.

For registration for the program and  kindly proceed to CDPP-Module-Audit “

The Date and time Schedule for the program is yet to be finalized. tentatively the course should commence towards the end of January 2021 after the registrations close on 18th January 2021.

P.S: Though the training program is driven by the needs of the  emerging Indian data protection law, the concepts discussed are universal and will apply even for compliance of GDPR and other Data Protection laws.

Want to know how to be a DPO in a hurry?

DPO or Data Protection Officer, is the coveted corporate position that many professionals are after at this point of time. Every country wants to introduce a law to protect the Privacy of their citizens through a data protection regime. Along with the data protection law comes the need for compliance and under a threat of heavy fines.

This has generated a new senior corporate position of the DPO who is responsible for the compliance of the law in the organization that may be called a Data Controller, Data Processor or Data Fiduciary or by any other name.

DPOs are executives who have to monitor the data processing activities of the organization carried out by the technology team, sold by the business team and secured presently by the Information Security team and provide advise on how it should not be done. With the threat of large penalties for non compliance hanging like a Damocles sword, no CEO or the Board can ignore the need to identify and designate a competent person to hold the position which comes with a legal empowerment to supervise the activities of the CTO, CISO, CMO etc

With the Indian Personal Data Protection Act around the corner, GDPR, CCPA, Singapore PDPA, DIFC-DPA etc already in place, there is a scramble for appropriately skilled manpower to hold the important position of DPO in many organizations.

While Naavi has been urging the community to understand the Personal Data Protection and be ready before the bill becomes the law, complacency in some parts of the industry continued and many preferred to wait for the law to be enacted before getting prepared.

Now as some organizations are looking out for recruiting the right candidates, there is a likely hood of these laggards losing opportunities to other swift movers who have already taken steps to acquire relevant skills.

The manpower agencies are finding it difficult to put together a proper job specification because there is lack of understanding of the requirements even amongst them. As a result, reputed organizations are trying to recruit DPOs in India without even recognizing that the knowledge of Indian regulation for data protection (as it exists today in the form of ITA 2000 and as is emerging in the form of PDPA) is of paramount importance for such candidates.

Many prospective candidates are rushing to read the Personal Data Protection Bill 2019 now  after seeing an advertisement for DPO recruitment so that they can at least try to attend the interview and take their chance.

While Naavi along with Cyber Law College and Foundation of Data Protection Professionals (FDPPI) is conducting in depth training programs leading to “Certified Data Protection Professionals”, from last December, there are many who have started running now to catch the bus of opportunity which has already started moving.

To ensure that such of those people who are making their last minute efforts to prepare for their DPO interviews, Cyber Law College has created a ” Certified DPO Foundation”  Program.

The program will cover a gist of  Indian and Global data protection laws, Relevant Technology aspects, Data Audit aspects and Behavioural Skills all of which are relevant for an effective DPO.

This program for Aspiring DPOs will be conducted by Naavi  through web interactions. The program will be specifically tuned for the requirement of different aspirants and may run for 3-5 hours.

This would be a unique program for those professionals who are trying to catch up with an opportunity before it is too late. It will involve Counselling as well as transfer of key knowledge elements with problem solving skills to mentally prepare the aspirants for the responsibilities of a DPO.

Interested persons can contact Naavi for more details.
