Cooperating on information security
and privacy protection
CIP, Centre for Information Security and Privacy Protection is a public-private network organisation, consisting of Participants and Knowledge Partners. Participants are (employees of) government organisations, who participate in one or more community activities within our network. Knowledge Partners are private companies that are engaged through a covenant and have committed a number of employee hours to be invested in the network, sharing knowledge. We endorse the principle: ‘for all, by all’.
There are various ways in which CIP offers the facilitation and stimulation of the exchange of know how, such as thematic meetings, workshops and games. We offer a wide range of products for all to download and use freely, using a Creative Commons license, called ShareAlike. Most of out products are available in Dutch only, some have been translated into English as seen on this part of our website.
CIP Privacy Baseline
Dealing with personal data the right way can be a challenge for organizations. What, where, by whom and in which way things must be arranged in order to guarantee privacy in the right way is not always clear to (employees of) organizations. The Privacy Baseline is your guide for processing personal data in a responsible way. The AVR/GDPR unraveled for application. The reference book from the method ‘Grip on Privacy’ that provides organizations with concrete tools to protect personal data.

CIP was founded by the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration (Ministry of Finance), DUO, SVB and UWV in 2012. These and other goverment organisations process a large amounts of data. In accordance with the legal framework such as GDPR/AVG, these information processing activities must meet set criteria on availability, integrity and confidentiality. Because of the increased impact of digitalisation in work processes and also in communication with civilians, these topics require more attention than ever before. As a cooperative community we want to make a substantial contribution to the information security of the Dutch goverment and within the chains between government organisations. This will also help increase the trust of civilians in the services provided by the government. CIP is a network organisation par excellence, with close to 2.500 members, representing approximately 500 organisations.
