Dickinson Wright PLLC is pleased to announce that Sara Jodka (Member, Columbus) has earned her CIPP/E certification from the International Association of Privacy Professionals, the largest and most comprehensive global information privacy community.

CIPP/E certification means that the professional is a Certified Information Privacy Professional – Europe and ensures that practitioners understand and work in the area of European privacy laws, regulations, and frameworks, which includes the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and US Privacy Shield framework. The certification complies with the ANSI/ISO/IEC 17024 standard and meets stringent requirements for analyzing subject matter and the field of work they apply, along with formal psychometric analysis of tests items to ensure that the certification truly differentiates those who possess the required skills and knowledge to do the related jobs from those who do not.

In her privacy practice, she regularly works with businesses to review and audit their privacy policies and procedure to get them in compliance; preparing for and responding to data breaches; post-breach remedying; and employee training.
