OneTrust is the industry standard for privacy and compliance management – I used this at my previous employer and am guaranteed to touch it again if I move back into compliance, so it seemed as good a time as any to level up my skills and get certified.
The live training is free and can be taken as two four hour sessions, or occasionally as one full day session – I opted for the full day option and signed up for one of the EMEA sessions (started at 4am EDT!). The training is 40% GDPR and regulation training and 60% training on using OneTrust, and I definitely learned a few things.
The exam is a 90 minute unproctored multiple choice exam with a similar mix – some regulation knowledge testing, some OneTrust-specific testing. Definitely a few tricky questions but overall I didn’t have any trouble.
Onward to the next.
