TRU Staffing Partners, the first North American staffing agency to partner with the IAPP as a reseller of their online training and certification, has expanded its portfolio to include the CIPP/E, CIPM, and CIPP/US.

The IAPP is a resource for professionals who want to develop and advance their careers by helping their organizations successfully manage these risks and protect their data. The IAPP is the only place that brings together the people, tools and global information management practices needed to thrive in today’s rapidly evolving information economy.

This partnership will provide the IAPP with access to TRU’s vast portfolio of talent, and in turn, give TRU’s rich talent pool in e-discovery and cybersecurity access and opportunity to get education and certification in privacy. This includes the following online courses:

Privacy is an industry that is still in its infancy, and there is currently tremendous opportunity for professionals in tertiary verticals and disciplines to matriculate into the privacy sector. IAPP’s certification portfolio is the definitive resource for gaining and validating expertise in privacy. We are honored to join forces with the IAPP to encourage and educate new entries into the community as well as certify those who already have years of experience building or maintaining privacy programs.
