Name: Erwin Asignar
Job Title: Senior Privacy Solutions Manager
How long have you worked at TRUSTe? Going on 3 years now. I will be celebrating my third year anniversary on May 10, 2015.
Tell us about your role at TRUSTe. In my current role as a Senior Privacy Solutions Manager in our Cebu office in the Philippines, I work with new clients who are completing their TRUSTe certifications as well as existing clients who are completing renewal certifications for their websites, mobile applications and/or cloud platforms. My job includes speaking with clients and having them show me how personal information is collected through their website, and reviewing and making recommendations to ensure their privacy practices meet TRUSTe certification standards. I make sure that I build a strong relationship with each client to add value to the services that we are offering. Aside from doing client certification assessments, I also conduct certification trainings for newly hired Privacy Solutions Representatives and Privacy Solutions Managers.
Tell us about your CIPP certification and why you decided to get CIPP certified? I’m currently working toward my CIPP/US certification. So far, I’ve passed the Foundation exam. I wanted to get CIPP certified because it is a widely recognized certification program in the privacy field that demonstrates thorough knowledge of privacy regulations.
What do you think are the top privacy challenges for companies? I think the top privacy challenges for companies are the constant change and evolution of privacy laws and practices. Companies really have to ensure that the way they collect and use information is compliant with the current privacy standards.
What do you like most about working at TRUSTe? We work as a team with the ultimate goal of delivering exceptional service to our clients. TRUSTe provides a great work environment and there is a strong support system among colleagues. I am thankful to have made friendships with my colleagues at TRUSTe.
What do you do for fun when you’re not working? I usually hang out with my family and friends. We go to the cinema to watch the latest movie, or sometimes I go to the beach to relax.
