ORTIGAS, Pasig — “Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?” If the various concerns and controversies of the COVID 19 Quarantine era have taught us to ask one question, it’s this one.

Who watches the watchers?

In the case of Data Privacy Professionals, it’s a question that’s even more urgent, since the law that created this essential profession only came into force in 2016.

To learn more about the development of industry standards in the field of Data Privacy, the Center for Research and Communication and the UA&P Department of Information Science and Technology invite you to a webinar by Israel “Iz” Brizuela, CEO and CRO of ePrivacyNow and the Data Privacy Officer of the National Association for Data Protection Officers of the Philippines (NADPOP).

Mr. Brizuela is also the creator / author of two certifications on Data Privacy – the CDPP (Certfied Data Protection Practioner) and the CDGS (Certfied Data Governance Specialist). He  will be talking about the development of Industry Certifications in the field of Data Privacy.

CRC started a partnership with NADPOP last September 2019, to marshall their efforts to design, develop, and implement a Data Privacy and Security Competency Framework (DPSCF) for data privacy professionals in the Philippines. He is the creator / author of 2 certifications on Data Privacy – CDPP (Certfied Data Protection Practioner) and the CDGS (Certfied Data Governance Specialist).
