June 8, 2017, RegitzMauck Press Release.
RegitzMauck partners Mike Regitz and Dustin Mauck have earned the ANSI-accredited Certified Information Privacy Professional/United States (CIPP/US) credential through the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP). “Due to the constant threat of cyber attacks and the ever-changing privacy landscape, RegitzMauck felt that it was important to confirm its strong commitment to cyber security and data privacy by getting credentialed,” Mauck said.
In addition to intellectual property matters, RegitzMauck assists its clients with legal issues surrounding cyber security and data privacy. With the rapid growth in cyber attacks and data breaches, RegitzMauck clients were the driving force behind the firm’s motivation to offer these legal services. When clients were confronted with cyber security legal issues, often their first call was to their technologically-savvy intellectual property lawyers at RegitzMauck, so being able to counsel clients on data security and privacy issues was a natural fit for the firm.
“By putting in the effort necessary to earn the CIPP/US designation, RegitzMauck not only wanted to demonstrate its understanding of privacy and data security to firm clients grappling with these issues but also show clients that RegitzMauck is willing to devote significant resources to minimizing the chances of becoming a cyber attack victim,” said Regitz. “With a high percentage of data breaches arising from spear-phishing campaigns in which criminals gain access to network resources by targeting company employees using sophisticated social engineering tactics, we felt it was important to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to recognize and combat these threats on a firm-wide basis.”
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 the 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/US demonstrates a strong foundation in U.S. private-sector privacy laws and regulations and understanding of the legal requirements for the responsible transfer of sensitive personal data to/from the U.S., the EU, and other jurisdictions. Mike and Dustin join the ranks of more than 10,000 professional worldwide who currently hold one or more IAPP certifications.
