1. What is CIPM?

An enterprise-wide privacy programme can be established, maintained, and managed throughout its entire lifecycle with the help of the Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM) credential, which provides privacy and data protection professionals with all the tools they need. CIPMs are aware of privacy laws and how to apply them to their organizations.

2. How many questions are there in the CIPM exam?
There are 90 questions in the CIPM exam which are to be answered in 150 minutes.
3. How are the exam passing marks determined?

The number of questions that are successfully answered determines the exam score.

4. Can you tell me how many questions I correctly answered?

The IAPP does not disclose to the candidates how many questions they answered correctly. However, a section breakdown showing the proportion of your right answers for each blueprint domain is given to you after the exam is over. Candidates who don’t pass might use this data to figure out which domains they should concentrate on when preparing for the exam again.

5. Why should you take the CIPM exam?

The privacy obligations of business activities, including marketing, finance, human resources, and customer service can expose their firms to financial loss and reputational damage. The CIPM certification equips professionals with the knowledge and abilities to operationalize privacy and reduce reputational risks associated with negligent treatment of personal data.
