As the folks at TechCruch stated, “Privacy is the New Black” just ask the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP). Information is becoming more and more valuable, particularly YOUR personal information. I would submit that in the Information Age personal data is the most important commodity.
With globalization upon us, products and serivces are the life blood of the worlds economy. The economy is the framework on which we employed or become employers. It is an endless cycle. Those on top are the ones who can target their respective market the best.
The Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP) is a certification for privacy professionals. It is a certification for those that realize the impact of unsecured personal information. There is a CIPP/g for government and a CIPP/C especially for Canadians.
