Another Revocation: Do I Need Retake the Exam or Do I Need an IAPP Cert

I know this is rather a personal question than a common one, but I need some advice. 

I've passed the cipp/e and cipm about two years ago. But I just found them revoked by iapp two months ago for failure to summit sufficient CPE credits and pay the maintenance fee. It's fair since I didn't check my email often. However, I'm wondering, do I really need this cert since I don't even check iapp website that often. It seems unnecessary to retake this exam and consistently invest time and money into these certs because it doesn't seem to help in getting a better job or improving professional skills. I have been working as a legal counsel in a privacy protection department for over seven years. It looks like the only benefit turns out to be maintaining a sense of English for I'm not an English speaker.

Thank you so much for leaving your thoughts:
- Why do you take the exam?
- How do you think the iapp cert has helped you?
- Is the iapp cert highly recognized in your country?
