What is a "Fellow of Information Privacy"?

Inclusion among the Fellows means that a privacy professional has "demonstrated...comprehensive knowledge of privacy laws, privacy program management and essential data protection practices through... successful completion of credentials... considerable on-the-job experience," and continuing education.  The criteria for consideration are:
  • hold a CIPP designation (US, Canada, Europe or Asia); and
  • hold either a Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM) or Certified Information Privacy Technologist (CIPT) certification; and
  • demonstrate three years of work experience focused on data privacy (ISC2, ISACA, IEEE certifications can satisfy one year); and
  • provide peer reviews; and
  • submit a written statement describing one's experience and expertise.
If you're an experienced, credentialed privacy professional, you should consider applying.  (There is no cost.)
