We hear about “mitigating privacy risk” on a regular basis. The GDPR calls for a risk-based approach to privacy operations. Certain “high-risk” endeavors even trigger data protection impact assessments and calls to the local data protection authority’s office. Rarely, however, do we see risk-scoring in action. Until today. The IAPP and Kryptowire have teamed up to survey 400 privacy professionals regarding how they score the risk of collecting dozens of types of data and performing various actions in the mobile environment. We used that data to first create a detailed report on mobile-risk scoring, and then to fuel the dashboard in Kryptowire’s Mobile App Privacy Analysis Portal, which any IAPP member can use to analyze one iOS app and one Android app. This analysis tool and exclusive research, performed by the IAPP Westin Research Center, debuts for the first time here at the IAPP Global Privacy Summit.
