The Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner for British Columbia has released a new privacy impact assessment template. The template is designed to assist in all stages of PIA development, such as retaining personal information, operations and risk analysis, methods to secure personal data, and procedures around accessing. The OIPC also released a guidance document to answer questions organizations may have as they either plan or revise their assessments. “These much requested resources offer an opportunity for private sector organizations to build privacy into their initiatives at the design stage rather than scramble and attempt to correct course in the wake of a privacy breach,” Information and Privacy Commissioner Michael McEvoy said.
