Privacy + Security Academy Certification Program (CPSA)

The Certified Member of the Privacy+Security Academy (CPSA) is a certification awarded by Professors Daniel J. Solove and Paul M. Schwartz. The CPSA recognizes you as a professional who has demonstrated fundamental knowledge of privacy and security laws. To hold a CPSA, you must pass an exam written by Professors Solove and Schwartz and engage in continuing education about privacy and security issues.

How does the CPSA certification help my career?

Obtaining a CPSA credential is a significant achievement. It differs from the IAPP’s CIPP certification as it focuses on what Professors Solove and Schwartz deem to be important knowledge about privacy and data security law. We encourage professionals to obtain a CPSA and CIPP certification.
