Toolkit helps assess your privacy impact Sam Grover
10 July 2015

You don’t know what you don’t know. It’s an often-overused adage, but certainly rings true when it comes to privacy.

It’s particularly true when you’re implementing something new in your organisation, such as a new IT system, a new set of processes or a new product offering. If you don’t consider privacy early on in the process, you run the expensive risk of having to re-do work later in the project, or face the consequences of breaching the Privacy Act further down the track. Neither are palatable options.

That’s why we’ve put together the Privacy Impact Assessment Toolkit, which makes it easier for you to navigate the privacy implications of your project. 

The toolkit is divided into two parts. The first helps you determine whether you need to do a privacy impact assessment. The second walks you through the process if you do.

There are also a few appendices with templates that you can use during key parts of the process.

The Privacy Impact Assessment Toolkit is part of our ongoing effort to make privacy easy. Take a look, and leave a comment below with your thoughts.

  • After reading this article I was shocked at how easy it is to fail to meet the expected standards of privacy quite unintentionally and this has served as a valuable wake up call that I will abide by absolutely! Many heartfelt thanks for this valuable tool that has proven to me its worth even before use - huge gains made since!!

    Cheers
