How much does a DPO earn?

The large range of responsibilities, high responsibility and novelty of the profession, combined with a small number of training opportunities, make personal data protection inspectors highly paid employees. And the International Association of Privacy Specialists conducted a study that showed that there is a shortage of DPO in the world: there are more vacancies than candidates, and the global demand for these employees is about 75 thousand employees.

Taking into account the important role of DPO in the global provision of user privacy and the complexity of training in this profession, we have combined our two courses – Data Privacy Professional and Data Privacy Manager – so that you can comprehensively master all the necessary skills for working with DPO. On the one hand, it is necessary to thoroughly study all the subtleties of working under the GDPR rules, and, on the other, to immerse yourself in the specifics of coordinating the project implementation team.


GDPR Data Privacy Professional

After training, you will:

  • Obtain 80% of the knowledge you need to pass the CIPP/E certification exam.
  • Save 2 years of self study of GDPR.
  • Understand what to do in order to comply with the Regulations.
  • Get to know real cases of GDPR implementation and breach.
  • Gain the necessary skills for DPO work.
  • Receive a recognisable GDPR DPP certificate after successfully passing the tests.
GDPR Data Privacy Manager

After training, you will:

  • Understand the basic concepts of IT infrastructure and the context of the regulation of personal data protection.
  • Learn to assess the risks of information security and privacy, as required by the GDPR.
  • Study privacy specifications in EU law.
  • Learn about SoA, PbD, Data protection by design & by default.
  • Receive a recognisable GDPR DPM certificate after successfully passing the tests.


The Regulations do not establish clearly defined requirements for the professional background of the personal data protection inspector. As we have already discussed above, a DPO is an employee who must simultaneously understand the intricacies of the European law of information privacy, have managerial qualities and have an understanding of the technical side of personal data protection.

Of course, more often lawyers, compliance managers or information security specialists come to this profession. However, the multi-profile and interdisciplinary nature of this position makes it possible for people with completely different experiences to become personal data protection inspectors. Subject, of course, to special retraining.
