ISACA launches privacy in practice report


The demand for technical privacy professionals is high—but teams are often considered understaffed in these roles, according to ICT professional association ISACA’s Privacy in Practice 2021 survey report.

ISACA says in its Privacy in Practice 2021 report that privacy technologists seeking to fill these key positions and advance their careers can demonstrate their technical privacy skills with its Certified Data Privacy Solutions Engineer (CDPSE) certification and are now able to take the newly launched CDPSE exam.

The CDPSE exam covers three key domain areas—privacy governance, privacy architecture and data lifecycle—which cover the tasks performed by individuals who have significant knowledge, experience and responsibilities in assessing, building and implementing comprehensive technical privacy solutions.

“Given the looming talent and knowledge gaps in implementing privacy by design solutions in a landscape with continually evolving and increasingly complex privacy regulations and requirements, CDPSE has gained notable traction after its initial launch,” says Nader Qaimari, ISACA Chief Product Officer.

“Technical privacy professionals can validate their experience through the new CDPSE exam, which matches ISACA’s globally recognised CISA, CISM, CGEIT, and CRISC certifications in rigor and requirements.”

ISACA says that CDPSE exam takers can prepare for the exam with the CDPSE Review Manual, a comprehensive, peer-reviewed IT-related privacy review resource and an online self-paced review course that incorporates proven instructional design techniques and interactive eLearning modules.

Additionally, a Question, Answers and Explanations (QAE) printed manual and 12-month subscription database will also be available later in April to aid with exam prep, accoring to ISACA, which says that virtual and in-person instructor led training options for individuals and custom training packages for teams of privacy technologists are also available.

CDPSE joins an established set of ISACA credentials that have been part of the professional community’s learning journey for years, including Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA), Certified Information Security Manager (CISM), Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control (CRISC), Certified in the Governance of Enterprise IT (CGEIT), and CSX Cybersecurity Practitioner (CSX-P).
