CIPS NL is preparing for another exciting event. Please stay tuned for date and location.
Have you ever heard a child say “When I grow up, I want to be an astronaut”? What about “When I grow

public awareness of privacy issues, privacy remains a niche profession – and an untapped opportunity for
professional development by IT professionals. By adding privacy-related knowledge and work
experience to your resume, you can set yourself apart as an IT professional.
As a current or aspiring IT professional, this presentation will give you insight into the following:
- The type of work performed by privacy professionals.
- Privacy-related work experiences that will allow you to stand out as an IT professional.
- Skills, education, and certifications that will set you apart from others with similar objectives.
