What is the CIPP Certification

The Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP) helps organizations around the world bolster compliance and risk mitigation practices, and arms practitioners with the insight needed to add more value to their businesses. It covers the “what” of privacy, and why you need it. There are four CIPP concentrations, each focused on a specific world region:

  • Asia (CIPP/A)
  • Canada (CIPP/C)
  • Europe (CIPP/E)
  • U.S. private-sector (CIPP/US)

What is the CIPP/E Certification

Developed in collaboration with the law firms, Bird and Bird, Field Fisher, Wilson/Sonsini and Covington and Burling, the CIPP/E encompasses pan-European and national data protection laws, key privacy terminology and practical concepts concerning the protection of personal data and trans-border data flows.

Professionals who want to develop their privacy knowledge as well as those seeking an in-depth exploration of major topics included on a certification exam. As the global gold standard for privacy professionals, the CIPP/E certification is a key industry benchmark among top employers. Backed by ANSI/ISO accreditation, a CIPP/E credential delivers higher earning potential and increased promotion opportunities because it shows a strong understanding of European privacy laws and regulations.

Allan Owens Met Chemical
The IAPP exam is a substantial body of work and I do not believe I would have passed without attending the CIPP bootcamp
Vickie Oliver Caremark
Great course and perfect preparation for the Certified Information Privacy Professional test!
Antonio Wallace Warner
I think that combining classroom, interactive parts, and self-learning (after I go home) help to reinforce the lessons. The hardest part is squeezing all of that in to a week. It worked for me though, I passed!
GS Iron Vine Security
The course was extremely helpful in preparing for the CISSP. The instructor was highly knowledgeable and had many helpful examples and tips for success.
