Earns internationally recognized privacy certification developed for business reassurance in the data-driven economy.
Fox Williamspartner Nigel Miller has earned the ANSI-accredited Certified Information Privacy Professional/Europe (CIPP/E) credential through the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP).
Nigel leads the firm’s technology and data protection group and is currently advising clients on their new obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), undertaking readiness assessments and working with clients on what is required to be compliant with GDPR by May 2018 when it comes into force.
Privacy professionals are the arbiters of trust in today’s data-driven global economy. They help organizations manage rapidly evolving privacy threats and mitigate the potential loss and misuse of information assets. The IAPP is the first organization to publicly establish standards in professional education and testing for privacy and data protection. IAPP privacy certification is internationally recognized as a reputable, independent program that professionals seek and employers demand.
The CIPP is the global standard in privacy certification. Developed and launched by the IAPP with leading subject matter experts, the CIPP is the world’s first broad-based global privacy and data protection credentialing program. The CIPP/E is the first professional credential specific to European data protection professionals that is part of a comprehensive, principles-based framework and knowledge base in information privacy. The CIPP/E encompasses pan-European and national data protection laws, the European model for privacy enforcement, key privacy terminology and practical concepts concerning the protection of personal data and trans-border data flows. Nigel joins the ranks of more than 10,000 professionals worldwide who currently hold one or more IAPP certifications.
Stephen Sidkin, head of Fox Williams’ Commercial and Technology practice, said: “Data privacy and security is of critical importance for all the businesses we advise. As chair of our technology and data protection group, Nigel’s attainment of the IAPP’s CIPP/E credential is a signal to our clients of how seriously we take this matter. Our clients will be reassured that Nigel and his team are wholly engaged with information privacy best practice, EU-wide laws and practical matters such as trans-border data flow.”
