London - Epiq, a leading global provider of integrated technology solutions for the legal profession, today announced that David Rohde, senior director of consulting services, and Melinda Kunjasich, director of consulting services, have earned the ANSI-accredited Certified Information Privacy Professional/Europe (CIPP/E) credential through the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP).
Rohde and Kunjasich combined bring more than 40 years of experience as eDiscovery practitioners supporting complex matters with multijurisdictional requirements.
“With the increasingly global nature of litigation and regulatory investigations, it’s important to our clients that our professionals are well-equipped to efficiently navigate cross-jurisdictional privacy and security requirements,” said Simon Hill, senior vice president and general manager, Europe. “We are committed to providing solutions for managing complex global engagements anywhere our clients require expertise and service.”
Privacy professionals are the arbiters of trust in today’s data-driven global economy. They help organizations manage rapidly evolving privacy threats and mitigate the potential loss and misuse of information assets. The IAPP is the first organization to publicly establish standards in professional education and testing for privacy and data protection. IAPP privacy certification is internationally recognized as a reputable, independent program that professionals seek and employers demand.
