A security threat and risk assessment (TRA) is the process of identifying and mitigating threats and risks to the confidentiality, integrity, and/or availability of information. A TRA involves identifying what information is at risk, determining the relative magnitude of the risk, and decoding what to do about the risk. The goal of risk management is to ensure that risks remain within acceptable limits and that the cost of countermeasures is affordable. A TRA is a collaborative process where representatives of various groups within the organization develop a shared understanding of threat and risk requirements and options. TRAs provide evidence to customers and regulators that your business has applied the appropriate security due diligence to its products and services.

A Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) is a structured risk management methodology that looks at the environment in which your app or device will operate, how it is used, and how data flows through the technical and business processes. A PIA will help you understand the privacy risks associated with your products and services. You do not want to over-engineer your app or device. A PIA will help identify real hotspots where privacy and security countermeasures may be needed. A PIA is also an important marketing tool because it quickly communicates your privacy safeguards to your customers and demonstrates that you prioritize privacy.
