The course is intended to guide the user through the ten privacy principles and each component's related criteria. The AICPA defines a privacy program to be: The policies, communications, procedures, and controls in place to manage and protect personal information in accordance with the privacy components and criteria in the AICPA/CICA Privacy Framework. In this document, the AICPA and the CICA are introducing the AICPA/CICA Privacy Framework (the Framework) for protecting personal information. It can be used by all CPAs/CAs to guide and assist the organizations they serve in implementing privacy programs. The Framework incorporates concepts from significant domestic and international privacy laws, regulations, and guidelines. The Framework is the intellectual capital and body of knowledge that provides the foundation for CPA/CA-related privacy advisory and assurance services. This program is updated to discuss the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679), a regulation of the European Parliament and of the European Parliament and Council of 27 April 2016, which, when it became effective on May 25, 2018, addressed both the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and the free movement of such data. The GDPR repealed Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation). This program also addresses the increasing development and implementation of privacy laws across the fifty US states, including the California Privacy Protection Act, which became effective on January 1, 2020.

This course is most beneficial to professionals new to compliance to privacy laws and data protection who may be at the staff or entry level in organization but also for a seasoned professional with limited exposure to these subjects.
