I recently realized this personal website did not have a Privacy Notice, even though personal data is being collected here. Was it a problem? Using the word “need” makes most people think about some external factor, such as a law or regulation.
After getting the Certified Information Privacy Manager - CIPM and the Certified Information Privacy Professional Europe - CIPP/E, I could apply for the FIP designation, recognition for leaders in the privacy field, as described by the IAPP.
I have recently started my preparation for the CIPP/E Certification from the IAPP. If you don’t yet know the IAPP, they are a not-for-profit association, recognized by many and self-proclaimed the largest and most comprehensive global information privacy community.
A hot topic right now, privacy is a theme that is getting more and more importance. New laws and regulations, recurrent personal data breaches, fines, and other sanctions; all of this results in increased attention from mainstream media and the general public.
