    Insoft-IAPP-training-partnerFounded 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 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. Government covers U.S. government privacy laws, regulations and policies specific to government practice, as well as those more broadly applicable to the public and private sectors in the U.S. You’ll gain an understanding of government-standard practices for privacy program development and management, privacy compliance and auditing, records management and agency reporting obligations for privacy.

    The training is based on the body of knowledge for the IAPP’s globally recognized Information Privacy Professional/U.S. Government (CIPP/G) certification program.

The unit then reviews other laws and regulations affecting government privacy practice, as well as laws that affect both the public and private sectors. It continues with discussions about privacy and the intelligence community, federal identity management and authentication, data sharing while protecting privacy and records management.
    • Unit 2: U.S. Government Privacy Practices. This unit focuses on adequately protecting government information, leadership responsibilities, information security (including the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) risk management framework), and “Appendix J” reporting incidents involving personally identifiable information, compliance monitoring and audits and workforce management.
