CIPM Certification and Global Privacy Landscape


In recent years, there has been a substantial increase in the enactment of Data Protection Legislation in different Parts of the world. According to Enza Iannopollo, a principal analyst at Forrester Research observed that since 2018, after the implementation of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), there has been a trend of constant influx of legislation and regulations from this field. Further the P. An Iannopollo observed that nearly 100 countries around the world have some form of data privacy or similar security rules in place and those rules are becoming stringent from time to time.

To substantiate the above trend, Gartner Inc. released a research report on May 31, 2022, which identifies about the upward trend in the growth of privacy regulations in the international scenario. The report predicts that by the end of 2024, around 75% of the world’s population will have their data covered under modern privacy laws and regulations.

Implementation of effective Privacy Program Management: 

To address the above situation, the implementation of an effective privacy program is paramount. A potent privacy program helps an organization to implant the notion of privacy into the overall business practice of an entity. The potential implementation of a privacy program is not just limited to legal or regulatory compliance of Data protection legislation, rather it serves many other functions including maintaining the quality of the data collected, satisfying customer expectations, improving brand reputation, safeguarding personal data against threats and cyber-attacks etc. Most of the corporations around the world are seriously investing in the effective implementation of privacy programs. According to the Gartner report, it is expected that the annual budget for large organizations for privacy program implementation may extend beyond 2.5 million dollars by 2024. 

According to a blog report published by the Canadian Bar Association titled ” How to Establish a Privacy Program: A Primer” stresses a new approach that implementing an effective privacy program shall be considered as a strategic goal for a company to demonstrate the value that is placed on privacy, integrity and confidentiality that the company holds to up. The said goal in turn will contribute to brand visibility and attain customer trust. 

 But to accomplish the above-mentioned goals and to ensure a smooth transition of privacy program implementation and for overlooking the whole operation it is paramount to appoint a Privacy Program Manager. According to Manitoba’s government Guidelines for Implementing a privacy management program for privacy accountability in Manitoba’s public sector, the second most important step in conducting an assessment and implementation of a privacy program is to appoint a lead person with sufficient knowledge and authority to access the compliance requirements under relevant privacy laws. Apart from the knowledge perspective, the lead person appointed must have experience of holding a senior management position to oversight the whole operation and assessment of privacy program.

Relevancy of CIPM certification: 

To achieve all the above skill sets and to gain a career edge over other persons who are willing to pursue a career in privacy management or you are planning to upskill yourself to elevate your privacy career, then earning a CIPM (Certified Information Privacy Management ) certification can be your go-to choice. A person who is pursuing CIPM certification is being trained extensively on privacy regulations and complex compliance requirements. 

The National Initiative for Cyber Security Career and Studies ( an official initiative by the US Cyber Security and Infrastructure Agency) mandates the uniqueness and importance of the CIPM program. It is the only certification that helps you to understand privacy program management and the “how to ” of privacy Training.
