Course for “Certified Data Protection Professional”: Second batch  to Commence in April 2020

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.
