Ensure that privacy is not an afterthought.
No matter the size of your organization, Privacy Impact Assessments often play an important role in any privacy program. A PIA is an invaluable tool to demonstrate privacy due diligence when changing existing or implementing new systems or processes at your organization. Often mandated by law, they are also a key component of any Privacy by Design approach. Above all, PIAs help demonstrate your due diligence in proactively identifying privacy risks and in developing appropriate strategies for mitigating those risks.
PrivacyWorks has completed hundreds of PIAs with organizations and projects of all shapes and sizes. When done properly, they can be a great tool to demonstrate to your stakeholders that you take privacy seriously.
Whether you’re developing a new software, engaging with a 3rd Party Vendor, or implementing a new process, a PIA is a great tool to help identify and mitigate your privacy risk.
