Skill Level Intermediate
- [Mike] Privacy professionals in the United States certainly need to understand the federal privacy laws that apply to operations across the nation, but they also must understand the state privacy laws that interact with those federal laws and impose additional requirements in some jurisdictions. These laws often create confusing conflicts between federal and state authority, and concerns over addressing issues that might be left unmentioned by federal laws. In particular, state privacy laws introduce new requirements for data security and data breach notification. The diversity of state laws creates a significant demand for privacy professionals who understand these overlapping requirements, and can help their organizations chart a compliant path in all jurisdictions where they operate. The Certified Information Privacy Professional/US or CIPP/US 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 state privacy laws in the United States. It's part of my five-course series preparing you for the CIPP/US exam. I hope that you'll join me as we explore state-specific privacy issues.
