Training and Certification for Organizations

Compliance, risk mitigation, leadership…whatever your objective, IAPP training and certification programs can provide your staff with the knowledge they need to help you meet your privacy program goals. The IAPP offers the most encompassing, up-to-date, recognized and sought-after global certification for privacy and data protection.


Meet your privacy challenges head on

Data is one of your most valuable assets. And every day it is being accessed, shared, managed and transferred by people in your organization in all departments and at all levels.

Unless they have a solid understanding of the considerations and challenges involved in managing data, you risk a data breach, losing customer trust—or even enforcement action.

Through IAPP training, your organization and your staff learn to institute better privacy practices, drive compliance and build a more effective data protection program.


Bring certification to your organization

Having privacy-certified staff boosts your privacy program effectiveness by:

  • Improving decision-making among employees who handle and manage data
  • Facilitating collaboration and communication among departments
  • Making privacy protection a shared business objective—greatly improving the compliance posture of your organization and reducing the risk of a breach
  • Demonstrating your commitment to customers, partners, regulators and staff

The IAPP has three certification programs—the CIPP, CIPM and CIPT—which complement each other by addressing privacy laws and regulations (CIPP), how to operationalize them (CIPM) and how to build your organization’s privacy structures from the ground up (CIPT). All three reflect the most up-to-date industry knowledge and were developed under the guidance of subject matter experts.

We can bring comprehensive privacy training classes and/or testing for any of these programs to a group within your organization. All of our training classes can be delivered on-site, at your convenience, by our Professional Privacy Faculty, an elite team of privacy and data protection experts from around the world who are actively engaged in the field of information privacy.
