Should I take both the IAPP CIPP/E (or CIPP/US) and IAPP CIPM to become a Data Protection Officer (DPO)?

If you have no prior experience within Data Protection & Privacy we recommend taking the combined IAPP CIPP/E + IAPP CIPM as this will provide you with the knowledge necessary for a role as a Data Protection Officer (DPO).

A number of existing DPO/Privacy Consultants may elect to take only the CIPP/E, where they believe they can learn the operational aspects via other means/ ‘on the job’.

However, if you believe you already possess a solid grounding in the regulation and legal aspects, you may then want to progress straight to the CIPM to complete your knowledge for a DPO role.
