Confirm your skills as a data protection officer with DPO Skills Certification from SGS ICS, a CNIL approved certification body.

Highway in the dark

As an increasingly important role, Data protection officers (DPOs) are expected to certify their skills according to GDPR requirements. We are authorized by the French data protection authority, CNIL, to certify the skills of DPOs based on GDPR requirements and CNIL standards. With 12 evaluation centers across France, we offer convenient, local certification sessions.
