Petruta Pirvan, CIPP/E, CIPP/US, CIPM, FIP



Head of Privacy and Compliance

I'm a Lawyer and a Data Protection Professional specializing in interpreting data protection international legislation with more than 14 years of practice in my profession.


I'm a member of the International Association of Privacy Professionals, a Fellow of International Privacy (FIP) and a Certified Data Privacy Manager (CIPM) and Professional for Europe and US (CIPP/E & CIPP/US).


I have been long acting as an in-house counsel for top multinational companies such as Oracle and Accenture and led the Global Data Privacy Compliance Program in A.P. Moller-Maersk by setting up the group data privacy practices, guidance and policies. I have worked and lived in Denmark, Ireland, Romania and currently I'm established in the Netherlands working for a Dutch company as Head of Privacy and Compliance and Lead of the Privacy Centre of Excellence.


In 2020 my IAPP session, “5G – The Forthcoming Digital Revolution,” was selected as part of the IAPP’s Women Leading Privacy programming and featured afterward by IAPP in the Privacy Tracker under the article “5G to raise privacy challenges and opportunities.”


I believe in ethical leadership and responsible management as being the glue that upholds beneficial business practices.


I speak English (full professional proficiency), French (intermediate level), Spanish (intermediate level) and Romanian (native language).
