Advanced Training For Practitioners

Advanced Training For Practitioners

Over a period of time, we at Arrka have developed deep expertise in our two core domains of focus – Information Security & Data Privacy. And this is a continual, on-going process.

We also recognize the crying need to share as much of this expertise with the outside world. The acute shortage of skilled people in this domain coupled with the galloping risks makes it imperative for the industry to share and spread its knowledge and understanding with others who are grappling with the same kind of challenges.

To be able to do our bit for the industry, the Arrka Academy is working to develop structured training programs and courses.

At the moment, the following two courses are offered by the Academy. These are for practitioners/ prospective practitioners in the domain who require deep domain skills to carry out their jobs.

1) DCPP Training

DCPP or the DSCI Certified Privacy Professional is a certification program for privacy professionals/ aspiring privacy professionals offered by the Data Security Council of India (DSCI).

The curriculum of DCPP gives an individual a comprehensive overview of the domain of Data Privacy. It thus lays the foundation for any privacy professional.

Arrka has worked closely with DSCI in designing the certification program and in authoring the Privacy Book of Knowledge (PBOK) that helps an individual prepare for the certification. Today, Arrka is an accredited training partner of DSCI for the DCPP Training.

The DCPP Training is designed to give individuals an end-to-end view of the domain of privacy and equip them to take the DCPP certification exam.

The Training is offered in two modes:
  • Open Programs: This is open to any individual who is interested. We typically conduct one open program every month in either Mumbai or Pune.
  • - Should you be interested in knowing the schedule of these programs over email, drop us a mail at
  • In-House programs: These are typically conducted in-house for organizations for their internal employees and other stakeholders.
  • - Should you be interested in conducting one for your organization or institute, drop us a mail at

    2) EU GDPR Training

    Given how the EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) has impacted the whole world, it is important for practitioners to understand the EU GDPR in depth. This is especially required for those who work in organizations who are impacted or likely to be impacted.

    The Arrka Academy has designed this two-day program that does a deep dive into the EU GDPR and its implications.

    We would like to specially mention that this is not a ‘legal training program’ about the law. This program focuses on taking the key aspects of the law that are required from an organization’s angle and going into depth about those aspects alone.

    The EU GDPR Training is offered as an in-house program today for organizations. Should you be interested in conducting one for your organization or institute, drop us a mail at

    The Arrka Academy is developing more programs in the Infosec and Data Privacy domains. Watch this space for details.

    The Academy also develops customised programs for organizations to cater to any special training requirements you may have in these domains.
