Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM)

CIPM Certification


Make a difference in your organization and in your career. The CIPM designation says that you’re a leader in privacy program administration and that you’ve got the goods to establish, maintain and manage a privacy program across all stages of its life cycle.

Add a CIPP/E credential to the CIPM and you’ll be uniquely equipped to fulfill the DPO requirements of the GDPR. The CIPP/E relates to the knowledge a DPO must have concerning the European legal framework of the legislation, and the CIPM to the theoretical aspects necessary to lead an organization’s data protection efforts.
