Privacy Engineering

Privacy engineering is an approach to business process and technology architecture that combines various methodologies in design, deployment and governance. Properly implemented, it yields an end result with both:

  • Easily accessible functionality to fulfill the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) eight privacy principles and,
  • Mitigation against the impact of a breach of personal data by reimagining defense in depth from a privacy-centric vantage.

The process involves ongoing re-calculation and re-balancing of the risk to the individual data owner while preserving optimum utility for personal data- processing use cases.
