GAPP is a comprehensive global privacy framework that creates a basis for conducting a privacy self-assessment or audit. The changes include additional criteria on privacy risk assessments; privacy incident and breach management; privacy awareness and training; and personal information on portable media. The organizations welcome public comment on the draft until June 1.
