Personal data protection is a growing concern around the world. While not every country has legislation to protect personal data, others like Singapore, Canada and the European Union have set up personal data protection regimes to address this.
In Singapore, the Personal Data Protection Act establishes a personal data protection law that comprises various rules governing the collection, use, disclosure and care of personal data. Get more information at the Personal Data Protection Commission’s website.
Personal data protection (as it is generally called in Europe and Asia) or privacy management (as it is referred to in places like the US and Canada) is a field that overlaps international borders and different levels of legislation. A special professional is needed to manage this – the Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM).
The CIPM is the world’s first and only certification in personal data protection/privacy programme management. The programme is targeted to deep skill Professionals, Managers and Executives (PMEs) in personal data protection programme administration to establish, maintain and manage a personal data protection programme across all stages of its life cycle for their company.
When you earn a CIPM, it shows that you don’t just know personal data protection regulations – you know how to make it work for your organisation! This globally recognised certification provides you the ability to stand out from others in your field.
