In 2022, Cameron earned the Certified Information Privacy Professional/Canada (CIPP/C) credential through the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), joining the ranks of professionals worldwide who currently hold one or more IAPP certifications. The IAPP is the first organization to publicly establish standards in professional education and testing for privacy and data protection. The CIPP was developed and launched by the IAPP with leading subject matter experts, and is the world’s first broad-based global privacy and data protection credentialing program. The CIPP/C demonstrates an understanding and application of Canadian information privacy laws, principles and practices at the federal, provincial and territorial levels.
