Littleton Park attorney Marie Kyriss was named a Certified Information Privacy Professional/United States (CIPP/US), after earning the American National Standards Institute-accredited credential through the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP). CIPP/US privacy certification from IAPP is internationally recognized as a reputable, independent program. Currently, thirty thousand professionals across 100 countries hold one or more certifications from IAPP. Kyriss leads Littleton Park's Privacy, Data Security and Cybersecurity practice group. She advises clients on legal compliance, negotiates contracts and helps clients prevent, prepare for and minimize the impacts of security breaches and cyber-attacks. In addition, at Littleton Park she focuses on high-stakes litigation in the state and federal courts of New York and across the country, with an emphasis on product liability litigation, complex commercial litigation and mass tort litigation.
The IAPP is the first organization to publicly establish standards in professional education and testing for privacy and data protection. The CIPP certification is the global standard in privacy certification and is the world’s first broad-based global privacy and data protection credentialing program. The CIPP/US demonstrates a strong foundation in U.S. private-sector privacy laws and regulations and understanding of the legal requirements for the responsible transfer of sensitive personal data to/from the U.S., the EU and other jurisdictions.
