Privacy Technologist | Self-Paced Online



Privacy Knowledge is the Advantage You Need in Technology

The collection, processing and transfer of personally identifiable information is creating a widening gap between the development and implementation of technology and society’s privacy. This leaves data open to hackers and corporations vulnerable to significant fines and damage to their reputation.

Technologists with privacy skills will:
  • Enjoy greater opportunities for career advancement through their unique, desirable skillset.
  • Elevate their industry status by holding the first globally recognized, ANSI/ISO-accredited privacy technologist certification.
  • Become leaders that operations trust to identify privacy challenges and architect technical solutions, while ensuring privacy principles are in place.
Can You Be Considered a Technology Expert if You Do Not Know Privacy?

A CIPT designation is the perfect complement to other important technology certifications, such as CISSP, CIMP, CEH, CISM, CompTIA Security+, GSEC, GSLC, GSNA, GISP, GSTRT, GLEG, GCPM, MCSD, AWS, Cisco DevNet, OCJP and PCPP. It focuses on improving operational responses through employment of technological approaches, such as Privacy by Design, Privacy Engineering, and frameworks.

To become the technology leader companies are looking for, a CIPT designation is the best proof of technical skills and privacy knowledge for those already holding ISC2, ISACA, PMI, Microsoft, Cisco, CompTIA, GIAC, EC-Council, and ITIL Certifications.

Those who will benefit include data scientists, data analysts, software engineers, designers, privacy engineers, developers, system administrators, data architects, UX designers, cybersecurity professionals, and those who work in technology acquisition, risk management and compliance.
