The IAPP is the first organization to publicly establish professional education and testing standards for privacy and data protection. IAPP privacy certification is internationally recognized as a reputable, independent program that professionals seek and employers demand.

The CIPM is a global standard in privacy management certification and recognizes leaders in privacy program administration, showing that anyone can manage a privacy program from beginning to end. A CIPM certification represents your strengths and knowledge within the U.S. private-sector privacy laws and regulations, as well as your understanding of legal requirements when it comes to sensitive data.
