What is a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA)

,

Privacy impact assessments are not mandatory under the FOIP Act, but are recommended for major projects that involve the collection, use or disclosure of personal information.

The PIA process requires a thorough analysis of potential impacts on privacy and a consideration of measures to mitigate or eliminate any such impacts. The privacy impact assessment is a due diligence exercise, in which the organization identifies and addresses potential privacy risks that may occur in the course of its operations.
