Education Advisory Board

The Education Advisory Board supports the creation of compelling and timely programming for IAPP conferences and audio series. The boards convene for monthly conference calls, during which members offer guidance on emerging privacy trends and issues, and recommend programming on global privacy issues that beginner and advanced privacy pros need to know. Other contributions include networking with peers to promote, support, and field inquires on IAPP event programming.

Privacy Advisor Advisory Board

Help guide the coverage of privacy and security issues for the Privacy Advisor, the IAPP’s monthly newsletter. The success of this important member benefit depends upon you, our members, who make sure the content is useful and fresh. This advisory board convenes once each month by teleconference, where members suggest timely, relevant content based on their work in the field of privacy. Besides meaningful participation in the monthly conference call, members of this board are expected to provide articles for the publication. Members may also be asked to recruit potential authors.

INSIDE 1to1: Privacy Advisory Board

In conjunction with Peppers & Rogers Group, the IAPP publishes the monthly e-newsletter, INSIDE 1to1: Privacy, which explores the relationship between privacy and trust. Privacy pros on this advisory board convene monthly by teleconference with Don Peppers and Martha Rogers to generate story ideas relevant to privacy and trust. Privacy thought leaders, practicing privacy pros, and attorneys are encouraged to lend their expertise on this board and help guide insightful editorial content for this popular e-newsletter.

IAPP Certification Advisory Boards

IAPP certification advisory boards meet regularly via teleconference to provide insight into and perspective on certification course requirements, testing protocols, continuing education, and program oversight. Opportunities exist to develop future credentialing programs. The IAPP seeks senior privacy officers, attorneys, and consultants with demonstrated subject matter expertise in the areas covered under IAPP privacy credentialing programs: foundation course (CIPP), U.S. government (CIPP/G) and Canadian privacy (CIPP/C).
