Social Media and Badging

Social Badging


You’ve worked so hard. Why not show it off a little?

Make a statement on your social media, personal websites or emails by showcasing your certificate or certification through a digital badge. The IIA uses Credly, an enterprise-class badging platform, providing security and protection to your certificate or certification, to represent your accomplishments as badges, so you can more effectively manage your IIA portfolio online. Communicating your learning achievements online provides:

  • A web-enabled version of your certificate or certification.
  • A place to manage your badge(s).
  • An overview of the skills required for the certificate or certification.
  • A secure means of storing and publishing your certificate or certification.
  • A way for employers to verify your certificate or certification.

Privacy Statement

IIA HQ takes the security of your personally identifiable information (PII) very seriously. The IIA partnered with Credly, which is owned by our certification exam administrator Pearson VUE, to deliver this dynamic program to you. Pearson VUE is already a trusted business partner and meets our data safeguard requirements as an organization that is PCI compliant and undergoes a rigorous review of Pearson VUE’s SSAE16 report annually by our own internal auditor.

The IIA and Credly have privacy policies that govern how both organizations use the information and who we are and are not able to share it with.
