Tara has earned the ANSI-accredited Certified Information Privacy Professional/United States (CIPP/US) credential through the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP). Tara has seen firsthand the explosion in interest and concern around privacy and data security as she has advised clients on their general privacy policies, COPPA, various U.S. state security laws, and most recently, GDPR. She is proud to demonstrate her knowledge and passion for the issues through this standard-bearing certification.

Privacy professionals are the arbiters of trust in today’s data-driven global economy.  They help organizations manage rapidly evolving privacy threats and mitigate the potential loss and misuse of information assets.  The IAPP is the first organization to publicly establish standards in professional education and testing for privacy and data protection. IAPP privacy certification is internationally recognized as a reputable, independent program that professionals seek and clients 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 demonstrates a strong foundation in U.S. private-sector privacy laws and regulations and understanding of the legal requirements for the responsible transfer of sensitive personal data to/from the U.S., the EU and other jurisdictions. Tara joins the ranks of more than 13,000 professionals worldwide who currently hold one or more IAPP certifications.
