17 Aug TUV Rheinland Philippines Certifies 100 DPOs
TUV Rheinland announced this week that it has certified 100 DPOs in its Data Protection Officer (DPO) Training and Certification Program for the Philippines.
According to the company, its Training and Certification Program probes deep into the Data Privacy Act of 2012, its IRR, the duties and responsibilities of a DPO, and an introduction to international standards including EU GDPR. Participants that pass the exam at the end of the program earn a certificate and a signet valid for 3 years.
While a Data Protection Officer (DPO) is a legal requirement in the Philippines, the certification is not. This means that the standard of protection can vary from company to company.
