The Center for Information security and Privacy protection (CIP) is a Dutch public/private network organization, consisting of over 2.700 members, representing 550 organizations: participants (governmental institutions, ca. 80%) and knowledge partners (private companies). CIP was founded in 2012 in order to make a relevant contribution to the information security of Dutch governmental organizations and their chain partners. CIP does this by developing, sharing and distributing knowledge and practical tools, such as the Privacy Baseline, the Privacy Self-Assessment tool, serious games, the DPO Survey and much more. CIP works through communities and organizes more than100 events per year.
