The CIPM is the world’s first and only certification in privacy program management. When you earn a CIPM, it shows that you know how to make a privacy program work for your organization. In other words, you’re the go-to person for day-to-day operations when it comes to data protection. The CIPM program was developed by the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), which is the world’s largest comprehensive global information privacy community and resource. The CIPM certification also holds accreditation under ISO 17024: 2012.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect in 2018, are you ready for it? Among its mandates is the requirement to appoint a knowledgeable Data Protection Officer (DPO) tasked with monitoring compliance, managing internal data protection activities, training data processing staff, conducting internal audits and more. There’s a lot to know, there’s a lot at stake and there’s a lot of opportunity for data protection professionals with the right training and education. Achieving a CIPM credential shows that you have a comprehensive knowledge of how data protection programs should work across an organization. Add a CIPP/E credential and prove that you not only can manage a data protection program, but you understand the regulations that govern them.
With a CIPM and CIPP/E combined you’ll be uniquely equipped to fulfill the DPO requirements of the GDPR. The CIPP/E relates to the knowledge a DPO must have concerning the European legal framework of the legislation, and the CIPM provides theoretical aspects necessary to lead an organization’s data protection policy.
The CIPM certification is comprised of two domains: Privacy Program Governance (I) and Privacy Program Operational Life Cycle (II).
Domain I provides a solid foundation for the governance of a privacy program and defines how the privacy program may be developed, measured and improved.
Domain II details the management and operations of the privacy program governance model within the context of the organization’s privacy strategy. The Privacy Program Operational Life Cycle domain is built upon a common industry-accepted framework of: Assessing or analyzing an organization’s privacy regime; Protecting information assets through the implementation of industry-leading privacy and security controls and technology; Sustaining the privacy program through communication, training and management actions; and Responding to privacy incidents.
