A Call for Agility: The Next-Generation Privacy Professional

Celebrating 10 years of the IAPP

Published: March 2010Click To View (PDF)

In conjunction with our tenth anniversary, the IAPP published a seminal white paper on the past, present and future of the privacy profession.

"A Call for Agility: The Next-Generation Privacy Professional" is the culmination of months of coordinated effort between IAPP leadership and many of the top minds across the global privacy community — the executives, academics, officers, and regulators that helped shape and continue to define the laws, technologies, and practices that are the core of our work. Most importantly, this paper reflects the real experiences and thoughts of you, our members, through the member survey process that the IAPP undertakes each year.


Over the previous 10 years the IAPP represented the ever-growing privacy community as the largest association of privacy professionals. We are committed to developing and offering educational resources, professional development programs, and forums for debate and discussion among businesses, governments, and nonprofits in the global privacy arena.

We trust that you will find the contents of this report both a worthy tribute to the history we have made together.
