TRU Staffing Partners, a globally recognized, award-winning search firm representing talent and opportunities in cybersecurity, e-discovery and privacy, this week announced a partnership with the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) to bring privacy education to the marketplace.

TRU Staffing Partners has become the first North American staffing agency to partner with the IAPP as a reseller of their online training and certification. 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.

“The biggest trend in 2018 to impact the legal technology and information security job markets is privacy,” states Jared Coseglia, founder and CEO of TRU Staffing Partners. “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.”

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.
