Michael Best Privacy Team Secures Prominent IAPP Privacy Certifications

MILWAUKEE (November 14, 2018) – Michael Best is pleased to announce that Privacy & Cybersecurity practice group partners Adrienne Ehrhardt, Elizabeth Rogers, and Ryan Sulkin have achieved designations by the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), the largest global information privacy community and resource.

Rogers joins Ehrhardt and Sulkin in achieving the designation of Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP/US). Ehrhardt and Sulkin have recently received the Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM) designation as well, which is awarded specifically to privacy leaders who demonstrate their understanding of data protection practices in the development, measurement, and improvement of privacy programs.

Professionals who complete these certifications must pass rigorous privacy and cybersecurity evaluations focused on U.S. privacy laws and regulations and strengthening compliance risk mitigation practices in a business setting. Both the CIPP/US and CIPM certificates are considered the highest qualifications in the privacy & cybersecurity industry and highlight the firm’s commitment to excellent client service and legal counsel on the latest industry challenges.

“It’s been a long and rewarding year for all of us as we’ve worked towards this goal,” said Ehrhardt. “I’m so proud of our team, and confident in knowing that our clients are receiving exceptional service from some of the best in the industry.”
