Privacy Impact Assessment

A Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) is a process that helps departments and agencies determine whether new technologies, information systems and initiatives or proposed programs and policies meet basic privacy requirements. It also assists government organizations to anticipate the public's reaction to any privacy implications of a proposal and as a result, could prevent costly program, service, or process redesign.
