The world is certainly getting smaller and smaller, particularly for companies involved in international data transfers. Tara has been advising her e-commerce platform, cloud hosting and SAAS-provider clients since January 2018 about their obligations as processors and controllers of the data they hold on people in the European Union under the new General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). Today, she earned her certification as a Certified Information Privacy Professional in European data privacy law, including the GDPR, from the International Association of Privacy Professionals, earning a score of over 80% in each of the three categories – EU Institutions an Prior Laws, GDPR, and Factual Applications. She is one of the first in Tennessee, and the first IAPP member in Nashville who is in private practice to receive this benchmark 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.
