Why Become Certified?

Distinguish yourself in the Canadian privacy field with a Certified Information Privacy Professional/ Canada (CIPP/C) credential from the International Association of Privacy Professionals. When you earn a CIPP/C credential, you're demonstrating that you have a foundational understanding of broad global concepts of privacy and data protection; as well as a particular appreciation of Canadian information privacy laws, principles and best practices at the federal, provincial and territorial levels. This course takes a deep dive into private, public and health sector privacy and regulator decisions/guidance.

The Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM) designation says that you're a leader in privacy program management - this how-to training can make a significant difference for your organization and your career, regardless of your industry or jurisdiction. CIPM training teaches a process for conceptualizing, designing, building and implementing a data privacy management framework. Learn how to manage the privacy program operational lifecycle and structure a knowledgeable, high-performing privacy team. Note that the CIPM credentials are accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) under ISO standard 17024:2012.  Click here for a whitepaper on how the skill set needed to implement the NIST Privacy Framework maps directly to the body of knowledge for a Certified Information Privacy Manager.

IAPP Certifications can advance your career in the privacy field and elevate your leadership profile. As the gold standard in data protection credentials, IAPP certifications are trusted anywhere your work may take you. Need more reasons to get certified? CLICK HERE for the IAPP's top 10!
