All state agencies have a requirement to protect the constitutional right of privacy in relation to personal data gathered by government entities. To support state agency privacy maturity efforts and better prepare agencies for future privacy practice assessments, the Department of Government Operations Privacy Officer will be providing all state agencies the opportunity to have at least one individual trained and certified as a Certified Information Privacy Manager through the International Association of Privacy Professionals.
Each participant will receive two full days of instructor-led training, textbooks, participants guides, sample test questions and exam vouchers. This training and certification will ensure your agency
has someone with the knowledge, skills and abilities that knows:
● How to create an agency privacy vision
● How to structure the agency privacy team
● How to develop and implement an agency privacy program framework
● How to communicate to agency stakeholders
● How to measure privacy performance
● The privacy program operational life cycle
Every State Agency is being asked to:
● Designate one or more people as privacy officers,
● Have at least one individual attend the training, and
● Have at least one individual obtain CIPM certification.
Agencies that complete the above three actions will be better prepared to implement and their agency privacy programs and will be included in the required annual Judiciary Interim
Committee privacy report as having met minimum expectations for privacy practices related to designating individuals with privacy roles and responsibilities within your agency.
The first training session is scheduled for June 21-22, 2022 from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
