Europe Data Protection Digest | Notes from the IAPP Europe Managing Director, 4 August 2017 Related reading: A conversation on protecting children's privacy




Greetings from Portsmouth, New Hampshire!

I’m here in the sunny northeast United States at the IAPP HQ this week, enjoying what is truly a glorious summer season. There’s a reason our organizational retreats are in August, believe me.

Most top of mind for us as we grapple with an increasingly large and global organization is how we can serve all you members with increasingly targeted and customized services and information. Which languages do we translate into first (and second and third and…)? How granular can we get in each local market in terms of the way that data protection law integrates with employment and administrative law?

The permutations to consider are complex and challenging.

However, we are, of course, charging forward with localization and diversification efforts. One of the first efforts — and perhaps most exciting for you readers of the European Data Protection Digest — is that we have translated the CIPP/E and CIPM exams into both French and German. And we need your help.

As we are ISO/ANSI accredited, we have to beta test our exams to show that they are performing appropriately before we release them more widely. Thus, we need beta testers — roughly 50 testers for each new test, willing to take the exam (for half the normal price, mind you) and perhaps not get their test results, pass or fail, quite as quickly. The certification staff has to analyze the results, establish the pass-fail rate, and decide how the exams need to be adjusted for wide release in the meantime.

Interested? Please raise your hand by contacting Bridget Morang in the IAPP certification department. We look forward to hearing from you.

Have a great August.

    Hi Bridget, it was wonderful to meet you at PSR, San Diego.  As mentioned, I have an analyst who is fluent in French and Spanish and is desirous of taking the test in French this year.  Please email me the glossary that you mentioned at your earliest convenience.  If there are any other resources you have that will help her, like a study guide, any translated sample questions that you may already have or even study groups that may be there, please also point us to those.    Thanks for your help and good luck!
