CIPP/US and CIPM certification details

The IAPP CIPP/US was launched in 2004 as the first professional certification in information privacy and remains the preeminent certification in the field of privacy. The CIPP/US credential demonstrates a strong foundation in U.S. privacy laws and regulations and understanding of the legal requirements for the responsible transfer of sensitive personal data to/from the U.S., the EU and other jurisdictions.

The IAPP CIPM was launched in 2013 as the first and only certification in privacy program management. It was developed in response to overwhelming demand to collect and collate common practices for managing privacy operations. The CIPM body of knowledge is comprised of two domains: privacy program governance and privacy program operational life cycle.
