Our latest series will introduce you to a new TRUSTe employee every week to give you an inside look at the talented, knowledgeable and friendly people who work at TRUSTe.
Name: Tony Berman
Job Title: Senior Product Manager
How long have you worked at TRUSTe? A little over 3 years.
Tell us about your role at TRUSTe: I am primarily focused on developing tools and services that privacy and compliance teams can use to improve the effectiveness of their privacy program governance. I am very excited about the positive feedback we have received for the new Assessment Manager module in TRUSTe’s Data Privacy Management Platform that empowers our customers to centralize and streamline the privacy assessment process.
Tell us about your CIPP certification and why you decided to get CIPP certified? I don’t think it is possible to create tools and services to help companies without first fully understanding the environment within which they operate and the multiple regulatory issues and challenges they face. CIPP certification has provided me not only the insight into what needs to be complied with, but has also helped me to become a credible part of the privacy community. My CIPM certification has been a great benefit in understanding how a privacy function should operate and the tools needed to ensure proper data privacy governance.
