Privacy professionals help organizations and individuals manage rapidly evolving privacy threats and mitigate the potential loss and misuse of information assets.  The IAPP is the first organization publicly to establish standards in professional education and testing for privacy and data protection.  IAPP privacy certification is internationally recognized and a credential that professionals seek and employers demand.

The CIPP is the global standard in privacy certification. Developed and launched by the IAPP with leading subject matter experts, the CIPP is the world’s first broad-based global privacy and data protection credentialing program.  The CIPP/US provides a strong foundation in U.S. private-sector privacy laws and regulations, and is current with the legal requirements for the responsible transfer of sensitive personal data to and from the U.S., the EU and other jurisdictions.  Shakoori joins the ranks of professionals worldwide who currently hold one or more IAPP certifications.

“Neda’s CIPP certification will help her and our team to continue to address and prepare our clients regarding their company’s privacy matters.  McManis Faulkner is fortunate to have Neda Shakoori and Christine Peek in the IAPP group.  We are proud of Neda for her accomplishments, including the newest one - CIPP certification,” said Elizabeth Pipkin head of McManis Faulkner’s civil litigation practice.
