- [Mike] Private sector organizations collect, process, and store massive quantities of personally identifiable information. Hospitals, insurers, and healthcare technology companies handle our medical records. Websites collect tracking and activity information. Cell phone providers and app developers collect usage and even geolocation data. When you put together all of these puzzle pieces, the bottom line is that the information contained in the databases of private companies and nonprofit organizations paint vivid pictures of our lives. Here in the United States, a series of laws protect this information from unauthorized use and disclosure. Unlike the European Union, the U.S. lacks a comprehensive privacy law governing all personal information. So we're left with a patchwork of laws covering different industries and different types of information. The complexity of this regulatory environment creates a significant demand for privacy professionals who can navigate these waters and work to ensure that an organization complies with its obligations. The Certified Information Privacy Professional, or CIPP certification, is a path that many people follow to advance their careers in this high-demand field. Hi, I'm Mike Chapple. And I'd like to invite you to watch my course on private sector privacy in the United States. It's part of a five-course series preparing you for the CIPP/US exam. I hope that you'll join me as we explore the federal laws governing information privacy.
