Hiring managers in privacy look for IAPP certifications before all else.

TOP 3 Takeaways From The IAPP Global Privacy Summit
  • The role of the CDO is highly undefined and varies greatly from organization to organization, but the CDO direction seems to be a logical and viable path for privacy professionals looking for the next evolution, namely CPOs.
  • Don’t get hung up on titles; because the privacy industry is still in its relative infancy, job titles (and even compensation) are not streamlined or settled like in other industries. Rather, focus on what the duties and expectations are for a position and how it is poised for growth.
  • Organizations are focusing on preparing for January 2020, the date the CCPA law becomes effective. They may be able to leverage some of the heavy lifting that was required to prepare for GDPR but will need to remain flexible as they operationalize privacy for additional GDPR-like state level regulatory requirements.
