Greet Volders, Voquals N.V., has earned the CIPM Certification
In December 2016, Greet has earned the ANSI-accredited designation of Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM) through the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP). In addition to her Master in Computer Audit, Certificate for Governance of Enterprise IT (CGEIT) and being COBIT Certified Assessor, Greet has now expanded her knowledge with the new Data Privacy regulation.
Privacy professionals are the arbiters of trust in today’s data-driven global economy. They help organizations manage rapidly evolving privacy threats and mitigate the potential loss and misuse of information assets. The IAPP is the first organization to publicly establish standards in professional education and testing for privacy and data protection. IAPP privacy certification is internationally recognized as a reputable, independent program that professionals seek and employers demand.
The CIPM demonstrates an understanding of privacy program governance and the skills necessary to establish, maintain and manage a privacy program across all stages of its operational life cycle. It is the first and only certification in privacy program management, developed in response to overwhelming demand to collect and collate common practices for managing privacy operations. Greet Volders joins the ranks of more than 10,000 professionals worldwide who currently hold one or more IAPP certifications.
About the IAPP
The International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) is the largest and most comprehensive global information privacy community and resource. Founded in 2000, the IAPP is a not-for-profit organization that helps define, support and improve the privacy profession globally. More information about the IAPP is available at www.iapp.org.
In 2014, Greet Volders has been accredited to give the formal COBIT5 Foundation and COBIT5 Assessor training,
with the possibility to take the certifcation exam, at the end of each training.
We can also provide your organisation with customised training, focusing on your specific needs.
Voquals is working on a Governance implementation project that could be considered as “state of the art”.
Why are we saying this ?
… because …
- we received our assignment directly from the general director of the organization, who defines the ICT strategy
- the business management is actively involved in defining the priorities for ICT
- we did the goals cascade exercise with the C.E.O. and the other directors of the company

In September 2013, Greet Volders presented 2 sessions on the EuroCACS/ISRM Conference, in LONDON
COBIT 5 Pam (Process Assessment Model)
The COBIT PAM presentation is designed for business and IT professionals who want to understand the concepts of the COBIT PAM (Process Assessment Model), and want to learn how to execute a Capability Assessment in an efficient and effective way.
COBIT PAM provides the basis for an assessment of an enterprise’s IT processes against COBIT 4.1 or COBIT 5 and enables process capability assessments to support improvement. The assessment is evidence-based to ensure a reliable, consistent and repeatable assessment process in the area of governance and management of IT.
During this presentation was explained:
- The concept and reasons to use the COBIT Assessment Process
- The purpose of process improvement and process capability
- The enterprise’s needs and value of performing an IT process assessment
- Scoping the process assessment and how to estimate the required resources
- The steps for planning and execute the assessment in an efficient and effective way
- How to apply this Process assessment, for COBIT 4.1 and for COBIT 5
COBIT 5 Implementation Explained
During this presentation, Greet has explained the method for implementing a Governance program for Enterprise IT, based on COBIT 5.
This comprises both the general principles and concept, the phasing, and all components of each phase.
The purpose is to provide a solid basis to develop your own implementation approach and guidance on all the phases of the implementation program.
