IAPP Virtual Options Aplenty!

The IAPP continues to find new ways to help you learn, stay connected, and stay informed with a variety of virtual options.

Virtual KnowledgeNets:

Just because we can’t gather socially doesn’t mean you can’t network with colleagues. Virtual KnowledgeNets are taking place around the world. Check out your options here.

Virtual Training:

In-person trainings not an option due to COVID-19 restrictions? Check out live online trainings – the same format as classroom trainings, but delivered virtually. Learn more here.

Virtual Exams:

Our testing partner, Pearson Vue, offers online testing options. Take your IAPP certification exam at home. Learn more here.

More to come!

We continue to offer more virtual content, including web conferences, webinars, podcasts, and more. Keep an eye on the Daily Dashboard and Asia Pacific Dashboard Digest for updates.

Stay safe, stay well, and stay positive!

They give members the opportunity to meet peers in their local area, learn something new, and earn free continuing privacy education (CPE) credits. There are over 140 chapters worldwide led by dedicated IAPP volunteers. 

We are lucky to already have an active group of members on the ground planning and programming local networking events.  We have 7 Chapters throughout Australia and New Zealand.

He provides operational support for the region, supporting our KnowledgeNet meetings, events, membership and our Country Leaders as we strive to grow the IAPP in the region.
