    Default IAPP CIPM Certification

    It looks like the IAPP has a new certification: CIPM - Certified Information Privacy Manager.

    https://www.privacyassociation.org/c...cation_program

    More details to come in April...

    Thanks! That's a good tip...

    Although, I wonder if they are diluting their CIPP certification by having a different certification. IMO - it may have been better to have a CIPP concentraton of Management like US/IT/EU. etc.

    Most of the CIPP's that I know are privacy attorneys or other infosec or risk managers so I wonder how the CIPM will be received by the privacy community.

    I bet that it will be received rather well. Remember when the CISM came out and how it really filled that need for a management-level security certification? I would bet by the end of the year when you see privacy manager positions that they will require either a CIPP or a CIPM.

    I ordered the material for the CIPM - I'm going to see about taking the test.

    I'll let y'all know how I do. Probably take it in a month or two.

    So as I'm reading the one course book, I have to say two things.

    First, the book itself is very good. I don't say this about many books, but this book is a great resource if you ever do anything privacy related, much more so than any of the other IAPP materials I have. It's worth purchasing on it's own merit. This is the new Privacy Program Management book from the IAPP, and the quality of the book is excellent.

    Second, I think the test will be harder than I initially thought. There's a lot of material here, and I want to track down the references so I can understand them.

    Very interesting indeed. This book is all about the "how" to get a privacy program running and sustainable. Good stuff.

    No problem. It's a solid good read. I'm still cranking through it, but I'm going to take the test in June, rather than May. Best to solidly prepare for the exam and pass. Plus work will be aligned then too.

    @wpc10980 - Welcome to TE. I was wondering... Did you get your results yet? I understand that the CIPM passing score was not going to be set until July. The materials so far seem pretty interesting so hopefully the actual exam will be as interesting.

    @paul78 - Actually, the end of July must have been a rumor. I got my results immediately after completing the exam at CBT center, the last weekend in June. I did not pass. i will wait a while before I retake the exam. Maybe year end.
    This article may also be of interest to you.

    I purchased the practice exam for $25, as I wanted to see how I would do. It's a 22 question test, and I missed one, so I feel that I am prepared. It shouldn't be a problem for the real deal then.

    If you have a spare $25, it might be worth looking at as a sanity check. The explanations at the back are a good review. One item that I might want to focus more on is the AICPA/CICA Privacy Maturity Model (PMM), and spend a half hour reviewing that.

    I'll reread the green book from IAPP probably Wednesday night, and take the exam Thursday.

    Very interesting article, but I would disagree with a number of points - chief being the cost of the CIPM. Total cost for me would be:

    $25 practice test
    $275 for the CIPM test
    $75 for the book ($65 + $10 shipping)
    =Total $375

    If you want to add the total costs, it would be:
    $245 for the foundation exam (maybe it is more expensive now)
    $250 for membership to IAPP
    $75 for foundation book ($65 for book, $10 for shipping)
    =Total $570

    So you're looking at about $945 to have the cert totally. Not including time to study and gas to and from the testing center. I would say that's less than the 5k they mention in the article. Admittedly, my costs above are from a few years ago in my order history, so they might have changed.

    There was a CIPM study session near where I live that I was asked to attend by the IAPP (it was kinda weird, I got a call stating - "Hi Goodbishop, this is the IAPP, we're having this swanky new CIPM session downtown, you should attend." "Naw, I'm good. Really." *internal voice - I can read the book in a hour and save myself 8 hours of session time, plus it's free, plus I really already know this stuff... yeah*. I talked to a few friends who attended it, and it wasn't a great study session. I would wait 6 months for any study session to get the kinks worked out.

    Granted I hope I'm not jinxing myself by posting this. Argh.

    Good luck GoodBishop!!!

    I've been procratinating myself on the CIPP/US and CIPM myself. I couldn't really decide which to do first. The CIPM materials are more in-line with my experience and background. But I found the CIPP/US material more interesting. I already paid the fee for the CIPP/US exam but haven't actually scheduled it yet. Your post just reminded me that I probably should do that

    @wpc10980 - thanks for sharing the link. Based on the few pages that I've read of the CIPM, it makes sense. The cost did seem kinda high though as @GoodBishop mentioned - I wonder if that's because it was in Canada.

    It cost me 32 minutes of my life, but I passed the CIPM test with a scaled score of 420. 85% in Privacy Program Governance, 95% in Privacy Operational Lifecycle.

    w00t!

    I probably missed 4 or 5 questions out of 45. It was difficult in some areas, but easy in others. I would agree with the recommendation in the IAPP site to study the green book Privacy Program Management, and you should do fine.

    Nice! Congratulations!

    I noticed you have quite a collection of certs - what do you do if you don't mind me asking?
