Currently, there are many providers offering preparation for the CIPP/E® exam. Most of these training courses focus primarily on the exam itself. However, don’t underestimate the CIPP/E® exam!

The training consists of two classroom days, combining theory with practical case studies and practice questions. You will learn about European data protection, legislative bodies, legal framework, GDPR compliance, and cross-border data transfer and gain practical insights and real-world applications.
