☑ Yes! I want to learn the must-have essentials for overseeing my organization’s privacy and security program.  Please reserve my seat for POOF.

Dates: September 25 & 26, 2019

Location: Wildwood Lodge | Clive, Iowa 

I understand that I’ll leave this program able to:

  • Understand exactly what’s needed to safeguard my practice.
  • Protect patients’ valuable data from dangerous breaches.
  • Recognize privacy and security risks – and the potential employee errors that may leave us exposed.
  • Build a solid understanding of the Privacy Framework – the foundation for an effective privacy program.
  • Approach my program with solid privacy principles that apply to my regulatory environment (HIPAA, SOC 2, PCI, etc.).
  • Feel confident about being able to handle this important role.
  • Gain peace of mind that I’m properly managing my organization’s privacy and security program.
  • Get a jumpstart on preparing to sit for the CIPM if I choose.* 
  • Walk out the door ready to create my organization’s privacy and security plan.

I understand that my delight in this program is guaranteed. I’ll attend the entire training and participate in all of the activities. If I don’t agree that POOF teaches what I need to:

  •  Confidently design, implement and manage a privacy and security program
  • Evaluate my program’s effectiveness
  • Assess vendors offering related services

… I’ll turn in my course materials at the end of the day, and you’ll refund every penny of my tuition.

* About the IAPP and CIPM

In addition to providing privacy fundamentals, if you are inclined to transition into becoming a privacy professional, this training will provide the knowledge you need to prepare you to sit for IAPP’s (International Association of Privacy Professionals) CIPM (Certified Information Privacy Manager) foundational certification.

Additional studying will be required. We also cannot guarantee that you’ll pass the exam, as that depends on your commitment to preparation and your ability to learn the material. Contact us at to learn more.

Join the below list of companies that rely on the IAPP for their privacy guidance and certifications:


“I want to become a Certified Information Privacy Manager. I want training PLUS CIPM preparation support.”

“I want a solid foundation, but don’t plan to sit for the CIPM exam.”
