With the help of a well-executed PIA you document which data is going to be collected, why this is needed, how the data are going to be used and shared, and how the security of that is guaranteed. Since the 25th of May 2018, the date on which the General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’) came into effect, PIA’s are mandatory in certain situations.
The ideal moment for a Privacy Impact Assessment is before the start of a new project, for example the developing of new software. This decision does not only help adhering to the Privacy by Design principle, it also gives a clear view on possible risks.
Mapping privacy risks makes them manageable. Not only when software is developed, but also when making major changes to existing systems; in case of a merger, for example.
Mapping privacy risks makes them manageable. More manageable in sofware development, and in big changes to existing systems or mergers.
A PIA isn’t just window dressing that disappears in an office cabinet after finishing. By repeating the PIA you have a continous monitoring of privacy risks and possible misuse of personal data.
