Introducing ISACA’s CDPSE


You might have already heard of our AWS Discovery Day - that was just the beginning of Firebrand Sprint. Next up: ISACA’s CDPSE certification - which in fact is not even due to be launched before 2021.

ISACA and Firebrand are coming together to host a 180-minute webinar, giving you the inside information of what ISACA's new CDPSE certification is going to look like, how it’s going to benefit you, and what it means to get CDPSE certified.

Hosted by industry experts in privacy, this online instructor-led webinar will give you a look into the future of what it means to become an expert in privacy through designing, building and implementing technical privacy solutions.

What we know already of the Certified Data Privacy Solutions Engineer (CDPSE) certification, is that it’s the first experience-based, technical certification of its kind. You’ll learn how to boost privacy technology platforms and products that will provide advantages to your customers, build trust and advance data privacy.

The following 3 domains are the focus of the webinar and on becoming an ISACA CDPSE:
  • Domain 1: Privacy Governance
  • Domain 2: Privacy Architecture
  • Domain 3: Data Cycle
