The Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM) programme is the world’s first and only certification in personal data protection programme management. The programme was developed by the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) and is brought to Singapore by Straits Interactive.



Knowledge of your country’s Data Protection Act

  • How to communicate to stakeholders

The CIPM certification is comprised of two domains: Privacy Programme Governance (I) and Privacy Programme Operational Life Cycle (II).

Domain I provides a solid foundation for the governance of a privacy programme and defines how the privacy programme may be developed, measured and improved.

Domain II details the management and operations of the privacy programme governance model within the context of the organisation’s privacy strategy. The Privacy Programme Operational Life Cycle domain is built upon a common industry-accepted framework of: Assessing or analysing an organisation’s privacy regime; Protecting information assets through the implementation of industry-leading privacy and security controls and technology; Sustaining the privacy programme through communication, training and management actions; and Responding to privacy incidents.

This course helped me to put everything that I know about data protection into perspective.


The most comprehensive and hands-on course delivered in the most interactive manner. It has opened my eyes on how this is and will be relevant all the way through. Celine and Kevin have delivered this training seamlessly – it’s easy to understand and engaging.

Sanjay KhianiOperations Manager

Great information to prepare the role as a DPO.

Allan Goh

Instructor was able to structure the body of knowledge in a manner that’s easier to follow & understand, as well as able to frame Privacy Management (and all jobs to be done) in an applicable & actionable manner.

Michelle BustamanteHead - Data Protection Strategy

Excellent content. Easy to understand as it’s very organised.

Jeffry ContarciegoTechnology Operations Manager/COP

Excellent pacing of course delivery. I like the way the trainer has taken the effort to enhance our understanding of new topics.

Amelia ChungProgram Director

Content was easy to understand and arranged systematically. Very relevant for persons seeking to implement a practical framework. Able to deliver content in a very interesting manner. Made it fun and gave a lot of practical uses/knowledge to help us better understand the topic.


I do think the instructors are experts in what they teach. What I like best is the summary of all that went on in the class and all on one two-sided page and it helps a great deal in terms of studies and exam.

Elsa Law

This is definitely a mind boggling workshop that very quickly took me into the deeper world of data protection/ privacy. This course has also helped me understand and dive deeper into the context of PDPA and GDPR and its application where relevant both practically and operationally.

Naomi RuthCompliance Manager

Workshop content is very comprehensive and Celine provides added value with her knowledge in the technical aspect of information security and protection.
