The IAPP is a resource for professionals who want to develop and advance their careers by helping their organizations successfully manage these risks and protect their data. The IAPP is the only place that brings together the people, tools and global information management practices needed to thrive in today’s rapidly evolving information economy.

This partnership will provide the IAPP with access to TRU’s vast portfolio of talent, and in turn, give TRU’s rich talent pool in e-discovery and cybersecurity access and opportunity to get education and certification bundles in privacy. This includes a specialized online “GDPR Ready” training bundle which provides the knowledge to become a GDPR-ready privacy pro or data protection officer with a combination of the Certified Information Privacy Professional/Europe (CIPP/E) and the Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM) training.

Privacy is an industry that is still in its infancy, and there is currently tremendous opportunity for professionals in tertiary verticals and disciplines to matriculate into the privacy sector. IAPP’s certification portfolio is the definitive resource for gaining and validating expertise in privacy. We are honored to join forces with the IAPP to encourage and educate new entries into the community as well as certify those who already have years of experience building or maintaining privacy programs.

Priority Representation for SANS CyberTalent Participants

TRU has partnered with the SANS Institute to bring participants from the SANS CyberTalent programs direct access to its talent agents, job postings, scholarship programs and valuable market intelligence. “There is a critical need for information security professionals, which is why we have developed the CyberTalent unit within the SANS Institute,” said Jim Michaud, director of CyberTalent Solutions, SANS Institute. “We are excited to partner with TRU and its TRU Cyber division to help participants in the SANS CyberTalent programs find employers looking for talent with their specific skills.”

SANS is the most trusted source for vocational cybersecurity training in the United States. Their deep-rooted commitment to keeping our public and private citizens educated on the quintessential technology and knowledge bases required for defending and protecting data is the core of their culture, and their expertise and teaching staff are second to none. We look forward to meeting and getting to know the lives and careers of the SANS CyberTalent constituents and providing career counseling and placement services for them. Professionals in the cybersecurity field will have many opportunities in the coming years, and they will need someone to help them make smart, healthy career decisions. They need someone who knows what they do, the job market they specialize in, the challenges they face – particularly transitioning from federal to private employment and consulting – and much more.

In addition to working together on the SANS CyberTalent Fairs, the companies plan to collaborate on a number of other initiatives, including thought leadership events and white papers.
