Just as today in my work I carry out Business Impact Analysis, Risk Analysis and Compliance Assessments, now has come out something called a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA). This comes as no surprise to a lot of us working in this area. I am pretty pleased that this has been developed. Although clearly there is bound to be still some work/tweaking to do, I do think it’s a pretty good start. Link to press release follows:

“UK’s first privacy impact assessment handbook has been launched to help organisations address the risks to personal privacy before implementing new initiatives and technologies”
