Certified Information Privacy Technologist (CIPT) certification program

The “how” of privacy and technology, and why you need it.

The CIPT is the first and only certification of its kind worldwide. It was launched by the IAPP in 2014 to meet the growing need that only tech pros can fill—securing data privacy at all stages of IT product and service lifecycles.

The CIPT credential shows you’ve got the knowledge to build your organization’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. Whether you work in the public or private sector, data privacy skills are quickly becoming a must-have—and that’s a great opportunity for you.

The CIPT certification also holds accreditation under ISO 17024: 2012.

PRIVACY IN TECHNOLOGY

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