CIPP/G Certified Information Privacy Professional US Government

CIPP/G Certification Training Course Washington, DC

Course Description

The Certified Information Privacy Professional/Government (CIPP/G) is the first publicly available privacy certification designed for employees of U.S. federal, state, county and local government agencies. It also is available to vendors, suppliers and consultants who serve government clients.

Developed by the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), the CIPP/G addresses U.S. government privacy laws, regulations and policies specific to government practice, as well as those more broadly applicable to the public and private sectors in the U.S. It also covers U.S. government standard practices for privacy program development and management, privacy compliance and auditing, records management, and agency reporting obligations for privacy.

SecureNinja’s IAPP CIPP/G (2) two day training and certification boot camp in Washington DC, San Diego, CA and Live Online provides a foundational understanding of both broad global and concepts of privacy and data protection law and practice plus you have knowledge of these components within your concentration:

  • Jurisdictional laws, regulations and enforcement models, or rules and standards
  • Essential privacy concepts and principals
  • Legal requirements for handling and transferring data

You will gain an introduction to US government privacy definitions and principals as well as a discussion around privacy and in the intelligence community. You will learn how to adequately protect government information, leadership responsibilities, information security, and compliance monitoring and workforce management.

Originally launched in 2004 as the first professional certification ever offered in information privacy, the CIPP has become the preeminent credential in the field. It’s also the IAPP’s single largest educational program with several thousand certified professionals working in the field today (and earning more than they did before certification!)

The CIPP/G credential says you know privacy laws and regulations and how to apply them. It also says you know how to secure your place in the information economy.
