Launch the eLearning course

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.
