The CIPT is the first and only global privacy certification designed for technology, security and engineering professionals. As privacy legislation increases worldwide
A CIPT demonstrates you have the practical knowledge to apply privacy and data protection practices into the development, engineering, deployment and auditing of products and services through methods such as Privacy by Design, Privacy Engineering, risk models, frameworks and more.
The CIPT is the “how” of privacy (technology). Earning this designation shows you know how to manage and build privacy requirements and controls into technology.
Data privacy skills are quickly becoming a must-have for professionals in the technology, information security and engineering fields. With regulators worldwide requiring privacy protections to be built into products and services, the job market has never been stronger for those who have this additional expertise.
Organizations of all sizes are significantly investing in technology and technologists to help ensure compliance with new privacy legislations. Develop the skills to identify problems, create technical solutions and implement privacy principles in compliance with sweeping data protection regulations.
Whether you work in the private or public sector, a CIPT credential will demonstrate you have the practical knowledge to apply privacy and data protection practices in the development, engineering, deployment or auditing of products and services.
The CIPT is for you if you’re responsible for:
- Information technology
