The German Association for Data Protection and Data Security (Gesellschaft für Datenschutz und Datensicherheit e.V.) was founded in 1976 and stands as a non-profit organization for practicable and effective data protection. The GDD interacts with government officials, data protection authorities, associations and privacy experts world-wide. The GDD helps data controllers and particularly their data protection officers / corporate privacy officers (DPOs / CPOs) to solve the many different legal, technical and organizational problems in order to achieve a proper balance between the interests of data subjects who merit protection and the equally justified need for information on the part of controllers and individual persons. A major goal of the GDD is to strengthen effective self-regulation and corporate self-monitoring in the framework of German data protection law in order to make state supervision and controls unnecessary as far as possible. Furthermore, the GDD raises awareness of the advantages of self-regulation and corporate privacy management in other EU and non-EU countries. Being the largest association of its kind in Germany, the GDD currently has more than 2.000 members. The amount of members is constantly growing which shows the value of privacy and data protection in companies and in general.

Externer Datenschutzbeauftragter (BvD e.V.)

In order to increase the quality and acceptance of data protection, the BvD developed and updated "The trade and grade of the data protection officer." In the professional model the BvD describes professional and personal requirements for the practice of the profession and defines e.g. duties and performances of the data protection officer. With the development of the outline of a profession for data protection officers, the BvD establishes quality standards for the minimum professional qualifications and training of data protection officers. The profession is changing constantly due to the short development in information technology. For this reason, the model of the BvD is updated constantly and thus all certified data protection officers have to regularly give proof that they meet all BvD criteria.

ITIL® Expert (APMG)

ITIL® is the most widely adopted approach for IT Service Management in the world. It provides a practical, no-nonsense framework for identifying, planning, delivering and supporting IT services to the business. ITIL® advocates that IT services must be aligned to the needs of the business and underpin the core business processes. It provides guidance to organizations on how to use IT as a tool to facilitate business change, transformation and growth.

The ITIL® Qualifications scheme provides a modular approach to the ITIL® framework, and is comprised of a series of qualifications focused on different aspects of ITIL® Best Practice, to various degrees of depth and detail.

The ITIL® Expert level of qualification is aimed at those individuals who are interested in demonstrating a superior level of knowledge of the ITIL® Scheme in its entirety.”

PRINCE2® Practitioner (APMG)

PRINCE2® is a structured project management method based on experience drawn from thousands of projects - and from the contributions of countless project sponsors, Project Managers, project teams, academics, trainers and consultants. PRINCE2® is a non-proprietary method and has emerged worldwide as one of the most widely accepted methods for managing projects. This is largely due to the fact that PRINCE2® is truly generic, and truly global: it can be applied to any project regardless of project scale, type, organization, geography or culture. PRINCE2® achieves this by isolating the management aspects of project work from the specialist contributions, such as design, construction etc. The specialist aspects of any type of project are easily integrated with the PRINCE2® method and, used alongside PRINCE2®, provide a secure overall framework for the project work. Because PRINCE2® is generic and based on proven principles, organizations adopting the method as a standard can substantially improve their organizational capability and maturity across multiple areas of business activity - business change, construction, IT, mergers and acquisitions, research, product development and so on.

The PRINCE2® Qualification Scheme has been developed by AXELOS Limited to offer a tiered examination structure with three levels of qualification, Foundation, Practitioner, and Professional. The purpose of the practitioner qualification is to confirm you have achieved sufficient understanding of how to apply and tailor PRINCE2® in a scenario situation.

Externer Datenschutzbeauftragter (TÜV Rheinland)

Many organizations outsource professional data protection advices. The advantages are obvious: no costs incurred for the training of own staff.

With the practical experience and the expertise of an external data protection officer measures can often be implemented more quickly and with less effort. Rigorous training for such external data protection officers is indispensable.
