Caroline Spiezio LAW.COM

Chief privacy officer salaries are on the rise, a new report from the International Association of Privacy Professionals claims, with U.S.-based professionals earning the most.

According to the IAPP’s 2019 Privacy Professionals Salary Survey, American CPOs’ median salary is $212,000 compared to $185,000 in the U.K. and $142,000 in the European Union. The global median salary for CPOs is $200,000 in 2019.

“Privacy is just becoming more and more of a necessary skill set for a lot of companies. It’s in great demand and whenever a skill set’s in high demand that tends to command a higher salary,” said Barrett Avigdor, a managing director at Major, Lindsey and Africa. “Whenever a skill set is in demand, a higher salary.”
