Privacy Impact Assessment eLearning

A hand opening a book entitled 'Guide to undertaking Privacy Impact Assessments'

A privacy impact assessment (PIA) is a systematic assessment of a project that identifies the impact that the project might have on the privacy of individuals, and sets out recommendations for managing, minimising or eliminating that impact. PIAs are an important component in the protection of privacy, and should be part of the overall risk management and planning processes of organisations and Australian Government agencies.

This eLearning program complements the OAIC’s Guide to undertaking privacy impact assessments, and aims to give you information on conducting a PIA in an easy-to-understand format so that you can have the confidence to do a PIA in your organisation or agency.

Privacy impact assessment (PIA) workshop slides

Conducting a privacy impact assessment (PIA) ensures privacy compliance is designed into projects dealing with personal information from the start. PIA workshops were held during Privacy Awareness Week (PAW) 2015, geared towards project and information technology managers and privacy contact officers working alongside project teams. Using case studies and practical exercises, participants learnt about the relationship of risk mitigation and corporate governance, the 10 steps to conduct a PIA, mapping of information flows, and developing solutions.
