Tash Whitaker awarded CIPP/E Certification
Tash Whitaker, Head of Compliance at Orcro, the compliance division of Moorcrofts, has earned the ANSI-accredited Certified Information Privacy Professional/Europe (CIPP/E) credential through the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP).
Tash leads the operations team of Orcro Compliance and has over 20 years’ experience in managing data at both Dun & Bradstreet and Cisco Systems. She already holds ICA Compliance certificates in Customer Due Diligence and Anti Money Laundering, as well as an ICA Advanced Certification in Business Compliance.
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. Tash joins the ranks of more than 10,000 professionals worldwide who currently hold one or more IAPP certifications.
Andrew Katz, CEO and Head of Tech at Moorcrofts, said:
“Data privacy and security is vitally important for all the businesses we advise. Tash’s attainment of the IAPP’s CIPP/E credential is validation to our clients of how seriously we take this matter. Our clients will be reassured that Tash and all the team are wholly engaged with information privacy best practice, EU-wide laws and practical compliance matters.”
