Certified Information Privacy Technologist (CIPT®) program - the first global privacy certification for IT practitioners. This two-day training provides guidance about critical privacy concepts, strategies, and techniques and will allow you to develop the skills to secure data at all stages of IT product and service lifecycles. The CIPT program was developed by the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) in conjunction with globally recognized privacy experts. It is accredited by ANSI under ANSI/ISO 17024: 2012 and recognized worldwide through a multilateral agreement with the International Accreditation Forum (IAF).

Certified Information Privacy Technologist (CIPT®)  - Exam included



Course Objectives

This training is a robust, interactive opportunity to learn about critical privacy concepts that are also integral to the CIPT exam.

Key topics covered include:
• Critical data protection concepts and practices that impact IT
• Consumer data protection expectations and responsibility
• How to bake privacy into early stages of IT products and services for cost control, accuracy and speed-to-market
• How to establish data protection practices for data collection and transfer
• How to preempt data protection issues in the Internet of Things
• How to factor data protection into data classification and emerging tech such as cloud computing, facial recognition and surveillance
• How to communicate data protection issues with partners such as management, development, marketing and legal

The CIPT credential shows you’ve got the knowledge to build your organisation’s data protection structures from the ground up. With regulators worldwide calling for tech professionals to factor data protection into their products and services, the job market for privacy-trained IT pros has never been stronger. While not purely a “test prep” course, this training is appropriate for professionals who plan to certify, as well for those who want to deepen their privacy knowledge. Both the training and the exam are based on the same body of knowledge.
