The CIPT – Certified Information Privacy Technologist course is our premier training on privacy and data protection practices in the development, engineering, deployment and auditing of IT products and services.
This training is a robust, interactive opportunity to learn about critical privacy concepts that are also integral to the CIPT exam. While not purely a “test prep” course, this training is appropriate for professionals who plan to certify, as well for those who want to deepen their privacy knowledge. Both the training and the exam are based on the same body of knowledge.
Every day we access, share, manage and transfer data across companies, continents and the globe. Having the knowledge to build your organisation’s privacy structures from the ground up has never been more important. 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.
The CIPT course includes:
- Exam Voucher
- Textbooks (ebook): Privacy in Technology: Standards and Practices for Engineers and Security and IT & Introduction to IT Privacy: A Handbook for Technologists
- Participant Guide
- Sample Questions
- 1 Year IAPP Membership
The Principles of Privacy in Technology training is the how-to course on privacy and data protection practices in the development, engineering, deployment and auditing of IT products and services. Those taking the course will develop an understanding of privacy-related issues and practices in the context of the design and implementation of information and communication technologies and systems.
The training is based on the body of knowledge for the IAPP’s ANSI accredited Certified Information Privacy Technologist (CIPT) certification program.
