What is a Privacy Impact Assessment?

A privacy impact assessment (PIA) aims to identify impacts on the privacy of individuals that may occur from the implementation of a new project, software, initiative etc. Any project involving the collection, use or disclosure of personal information should undertake a PIA. 

A privacy impact assessment is conducted in the project planning stage to help guide the direction and execution of the project. A PIA should be completed prior to most other project tasks commencing because the findings of the assessment should be fed back into the design process. No data should be handled until the privacy impact assessment is completed.
