Cyber Law College successfully completed the first Course for “Certified Data Protection Officers in India” by concluding the online examination process on 1st March 2020. With this history has been created with the commencement of a new era of Professionals who are ready to take on the requirements of Data Protection under the Indian law when it comes through in the next few months.
So far we only had professionals who were certified for International data protection laws and there was a need to create professionals who were more conversant with Indian law.
The Module I of the program which was concluded over 12 online sessions provided a good over view of the Indian Personal Data Protection Bill 2019 along with an exposure to the DPO’s requirements of technology and audit requirements to some extent.
In order to have another batch of professionals with the requisite knowledge of the Indian law, the next batch is being commenced on April 4th 2020. There will be 12 sessions of 90 minutes each with two sessions each on Saturday and Sunday at 11.00 am to 12.30 PM and 3.00 AM to 4.30 PM which can be attended over an online platform.
Necessary content will be provided and online examination would be held some time before May 2020.
Certification would be provided by FDPPI (Foundation of Data Protection Professionals in India). Cyber Law College would be the training partner.
The fee structure would be as follows:
Course Fee: Rs 6000/-
Course material: Rs 500/-*
Certification fee: Rs 3500/-
FDPPI Membership fee: Rs 5000/-**
One set of course material would be given free as soft copy.
*The book “Personal Data Protection Act of India” (PDPA 2020) would be a supplementary support material for which Rs 500/- of the fee is reserved. This is optional.
**The FDPPI membership will be for those who are not currently members.
Hence for members of FDPPI who opt out of the book, the base fee would be Rs 9500/-
For non members who opt for the book, the fees would be Rs 15,000/-
Cyber Law College in association with FDPPI is also planning further modules of the Augmented Certification program.
This would include
Module G: Including global data protection laws such as GDPR, CCPA and Singapore PDPA
Module B: Including interpersonal skill development including leadership skills, Decision making skills, Counselling skills, Mediation and Arbitration skills.
Module A: Including Data Audit skills and Data Governance skills
Module T: Including Technology skills required for a DPO.
The Module-I will be the base module of awareness which is presently based on the current Bill and would be further augmented when the Act along with relevant rules come into operation.
The five modules will be may be conducted by different agencies accredited by FDPPI at different points of time and completion of all five modules would create the “Certified Expert Data Protection Professional and Auditor”.
