Overview

For more than 10 years, the US, Canadian and European CIPP credentials have been recognised as the world’s pre-eminent badge of excellence in the business of privacy – the “what” of data protection laws and regulations. We are delighted that the International Association of Privacy Professionals has now introduced the CIPP/Asia credential. It demonstrates your understanding of data protection regulations, standards and practices in this part of the world.

 

The Certified Information Privacy Professional/Asia (CIPP/A) is the first publicly available privacy certification that covers multiple jurisdictions in the Asia region. It addresses the data protection laws in Hong Kong, India and Singapore and the regional privacy concerns in this rapidly growing landscape. The credential is designed for any person, regardless of location, whose work as a privacy professional involves Asian data protection regulations.

 

Be internationally certified and recognised as an expert. And position yourself to help meet the shortage of data protection expertise locally and in the region. Straits Interactive is the only premier IAPP Official Training Partner who delivers the formal training of the CIPP/A globally outside of Singapore.
