The Certified Information Privacy Technologist (CIPT) credential shows the knowledge to build one’s organisation’s privacy structures from the ground up. With regulators worldwide calling for tech professionals to factor data privacy into their products and services, the job market for privacy-trained IT pros has never been stronger.

This certification applies to anyone in IT, security, or engineering. This covers privacy by design, security architecture, software engineering, data management or audit.

Whether one works in the public or private sector, data privacy skills are quickly becoming a must-have—and that’s a great opportunity for you.

  • How to preempt privacy issues in the Internet of Things
  • How to factor privacy into data classification and emerging tech such as cloud computing, facial recognition and surveillance
