ISACA Launches Early Adoption Program for New Technical Privacy Certification: Certified Data Privacy Solutions Engineer
Headline-grabbing events and regulations have made it clear to organizations just how essential it is to prioritize data privacy. However, new research from ISACA indicates that many organizations are struggling in this space. More than one-quarter of organizations say it is difficult to understand all their privacy requirements, and 40 percent say they lack competent resources to implement a successful privacy program, which requires expertise in technical implementation that goes beyond awareness of regulatory requirements.

Given the high stakes for organizations and the great need for qualified professionals to create privacy solutions that are aligned with organizational goals and risk appetite, ISACA is launching its new Certified Data Privacy Solutions Engineer (CDPSE) certification. The first experience-based, technical certification of its kind, CDPSE assesses a technology professional’s ability to implement privacy by design to enable organizations to enhance privacy technology platforms and products that provide benefits to consumers, build trust and advance data privacy.

Professionals can begin to apply for the CDPSE certification starting today as part of a limited early-adoption opportunity in which those who have the five years of necessary experience can become certified.
“Up until now, certifications have primarily focused on the legal aspect of privacy,” says Nader Qaimari, ISACA Chief Learning Officer. “ISACA’s CDPSE certification fills a gap and allows privacy technologists to demonstrate they understand the technical aspects of creating and managing privacy programs and solutions to ensure compliance and mitigate risk.”
