What is a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA)?

Category: Privacy and Security Assessments

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.

We conduct privacy impact assessments (PIAs) for our client’s products and services. We can also update a past PIA.
