The Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP) helps organisations around the world bolster compliance and risk mitigation practices, and arms practitioners with the insight needed to add more value to their businesses.

CIPP/E is the premier certification to understand data protection requirements for Europe. Developed in collaboration with leading law firms, the CIPP/E encompasses pan-European and national data protection laws, key privacy terminology and practical concepts concerning the protection of personal data and trans-border data flows.
