Alex D’Amico, an associate in Morrison Mahoney’s New York office, has earned the designation of Certified Information Privacy Professional/Europe (CIPP/E) through the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP.) The Certified Information Privacy Professional designation is the global standard for the go-to person for privacy laws, regulations and frameworks.
The IAPP is a not-for-profit association for privacy professionals worldwide that was founded in 2000. It is the largest and most comprehensive global information privacy community, with more than 50,000 members worldwide. The IAPP indicates that the CIPP/E certification delivers the comprehensive GDPR knowledge, perspective, and understanding to ensure compliance and data protection success in Europe.
Morrison Mahoney has internationally focused clients whose needs require knowledge of not only the data privacy laws domestically, but abroad as well. With a presence in London, UK and servicing clients with locations worldwide, it becomes increasingly important for our attorneys to possess a familiarly with these laws outside of the U.S.
Alex received the CIPP designation upon passing the Certification Foundation and CIPP/E examinations. Specifically, he demonstrated knowledge of:
- Introduction to European Data Protection
- European Regulatory Institutions
- Legislative Framework
- Compliance with European Data Protection Law and Regulation
- International Data Transfers
Only a small number of attorneys are CIPP certified, as the certification primarily is sought by Chief Privacy Officers, information technology specialists, information security leaders and other industry professionals.
