Privacy Program Management

Privacy Program Management (CIPM Exam Prep)

In business, personal data is a valuable asset. Every day it is being accessed, shared, managed, and transferred by people within your organization - in all departments and at all levels. Unless you have a solid plan accounting for the considerations and challenges involved in managing personal data, you risk a data breach, diminished customer trust, and possible enforcement action.

UNH Professional Development & Training has partnered with IAPP to provide training to meet your privacy program goals of reduced risk, improved compliance, and enhanced brand loyalty.

Privacy Program Management (CIPM Exam Prep) strengthens your knowledge and skills for establishing, maintaining, and managing a comprehensive data protection program.

Topic covered include: Creating a company privacy vision; Structuring a privacy team; Developing and implementing a privacy program framework; Communicating to stakeholders; Measuring performance; and the privacy program operational lifecycle.

The training program is based on the body of knowledge for IAPP’s ANSI-accredited Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM) certification program and offers a robust opportunity to learn about critical privacy concepts that are integral to the CIPM exam. While not purely a “test prep” course, this training is appropriate for professionals who plan to certify, as well as for those who want to deepen their privacy knowledge. Both the training and the exam are based on the same body of knowledge.

Program enrollment includes: Digital copy of the course textbook; CIPM Exam sample questions; Voucher to sit for the CIPM certification exam; 1 year IAPP membership.
