Data Protection Institute
Throughout Europe, data protection is taking on an increasingly prominent role in laws and regulations. The need for thorough training for Data Protection Officers and general awareness is growing!
With the publication of the first version of what is now known as the General Data Protection Regulation, the role of a Data Protection Officer was added to the European data protection legislative framework. This was the starting shot for DPI as a training company.
Our first training course, the 5-day Data Protection Officer Certificate Training, started a small scale with a handful of candidates. They made our first training weeks a reality and thanks to their valuable feedback we improved our training week after week.
DPI has since grown into a leading training company in GDPR. Today we have trained 2000 professionals and we have a pallet of training courses for the Data Protection Officers!
