MINNEAPOLIS, MINN. – Briggs and Morgan attorney Phil Schenkenberg 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, only eight thousand professionals globally hold one or more certifications from IAPP.

Schenkenberg is a member of Briggs and Morgan’s Privacy, Data Security and Cybersecurity practice group. He advises clients on legal compliance, negotiates contracts and helps clients prevent, prepare for and minimize the impacts of security breaches and cyber-attacks. He also chairs the firm’s information security committee and is the firm's data security manager. Schenkenberg is active on cybersecurity issues locally through his membership in InfraGard (Minnesota chapter) and on the Cyber Security Summit's board of advisors. He is also co-chair of Briggs’s business litigation section, and practices in the areas of telecommunications and financial services 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.
