Certified Information Privacy Technologist (CIPT) is the first and only certification of its kind worldwide. With regulators everywhere calling for data privacy to be factored into products and services, CIPT is designed to meet the growing need that only technical professionals can fill - securing data privacy at all stages of IT product and service lifecycles.
Launched by IAPP (International Association of Privacy Professionals) in 2014, CIPT identifies technology experts who know how to build privacy architecture from the ground up. It is ideal for:
CIPT applies to anyone in IT, security, or engineering. It covers privacy and data protection practices in the development, engineering, deployment and auditing of IT products and services. Those taking the course will develop a comprehensive understanding of privacy-related issues and practices in the context of the design and implementation of information and communication technologies and systems.
The IAPP’s certifications in privacy and data protection law and practice have plugged thousands of professionals into the information economy. Now technology professionals like you can take privacy knowledge—and your career—to a higher level.
The GDPR includes among its mandates the requirement to appoint knowledgeable DPOs (data protection officers) tasked with monitoring compliance, managing internal data protection activities, training data processing staff, conducting internal audits and more. There’s a lot to know, there’s a lot at stake and there’s a lot of opportunity for privacy professionals with the right training and education.

What’s included in your training:
The IAPP uses computer-based exams, which are administered through Pearson VUE testing centres at locations throughout the world. Available testing centres can be viewed upon scheduling an exam. You will receive your results immediately upon concluding your exam, and a confirmation print out will be provided by the testing centre. Exam results will update in the IAPP system after one business day.
All results are placed on a common scale, ranging from 100 to 500. The passing score for all IAPP exams is 300 (which does not represent 50 percent). Typically, passing scores range between 65 and 80 percent correct, depending on the program and exam form.
Candidates unsuccessful on the examination are permitted to sit for the next exam administration at a reduced fee of $375.
IAPP offers its training in a modular format using 2-day courses. By combing your CIPT certification with the Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM) 2-day course, you’ll be uniquely positioned to both understand the technologies required to support privacy as well as the management program needed to implement and support these technologies.
