Founded in 2000, the IAPP is the world’s largest and most comprehensive privacy resource with a mission to define, support and improve the Privacy profession globally.
Data is one of your most valuable assets – every day it is being accessed, shared, managed and transferred by people in your organization—in all departments and at all levels. Unless your employees have a solid understanding of the considerations and challenges involved in managing data, you risk a data breach, diminished customer trust and possible enforcement action.
IAPP training can provide your staff with the knowledge they need to help you meet your privacy program goals of reduced risk, improved compliance, enhanced brand loyalty and more. The IAPP offers privacy and data protection training programs specifically designed to extend that knowledge to those on your team requiring a solid understanding of privacy principles and practices.
Principles of Privacy in the U.S. Private Sector covers U.S. privacy laws and regulations at federal and state levels, including breach notification and limits on various private sectors. You’ll leave with an understanding of the legal requirements for the responsible handling and transfer of personal data within industry and workplaces, including government access to private-sector data.
The training is based on the body of knowledge for the IAPP’s ANSI-accredited Certified Information Privacy Professional/ U.S. (CIPP/US) certification program.
