Upcoming Changes In Cipp/E Exam Pattern

The Certified Information Privacy Professional/Europe (CIPP/E) certification examination evolves as the data protection landscape evolves. The CIPP/E remains a cornerstone for professionals aiming to grasp national and pan-European data protection regulations, essential privacy terminology, and robust strategies for safeguarding personal data and facilitating cross-border data flows. The CIPP/E is a highly respected industry-standard credential that demonstrates your proficiency in understanding privacy rules and regulations within the European context. It covers critical topics like the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), including the role of Data Protection Officers (DPOs). The CIPP/E exam preparation includes live virtual training, materials, and doubt-clearing sessions. The IAPP regularly updates their certification examinations, materials, and training, ensuring the highest quality of training and keeping up with the most recent privacy improvements.

To align with the dynamic nature of data protection practices, the CIPP/E exam pattern is undergoing some updates effective from October 3 onwards. These modifications ensure that candidates have the most pertinent and current knowledge to navigate the intricate world of data protection effectively.

Pre-October 3 Syllabus: Foundation and Evolution of European Data Protection

For those taking the CIPP/E exam before October 3, the syllabus includes a comprehensive understanding of the Introduction to European Data Protection. This section delves into the historical origins of data protection laws within the European Union, exploring the legislative framework of EU institutions and their role in shaping data protection regulations.

Post-October 3 Syllabus: Embracing the Contemporary Landscape

From October 3 onwards, the CIPP/E exam syllabus will undergo refinements to reflect the changing landscape of data protection regulations. Notably, the section encompassing OECD Guidelines and Council of Europe Convention 108 and Council of Europe will be excluded from the syllabus, streamlining the focus on more current and pertinent topics.

The core of the course, European Data Protection Law and Regulation, remains integral. It is divided into eleven subparts, each meticulously designed to cover a range of critical regulatory aspects:

  • Data Protection Concepts
  • Territorial and Material Scope of the General Data Protection Regulation
  • Data Processing Principles
  • Lawful Processing Criteria
  • Information Provision Obligations
  • Data Subjects’ Rights
  • Security of Personal Data
  • Accountability Requirements
  • International Data Transfers
  • Supervision and Enforcement
  • Consequences for GDPR Violations
  • Diving Deeper: Specialized Guidelines and Current Practices

For candidates taking the CIPP/E exam after October 3, the syllabus includes an expanded section that delves into specific guidelines to enhance understanding and proficiency. These include topics such as:

  • Controller and Processor Concepts
  • Territorial Scope of GDPR
  • Right to be Forgotten Criteria
  • Restrictions under Article 23 GDPR
  • The interplay between Article 3 and Chapter V of the GDPR
  • Codes of Conduct as Transfer Tools
  • Derogations of Article 49
  • Measures for Compliance with EU Data Protection Levels
