ABSTRACT

Guide to Conducting Privacy Impact Assessments for State, Local, and Tribal Information Sharing Initiatives [April 2009]   [open pdf - 1MB]

"Greater information-sharing capabilities and opportunities are accompanied by equally greater responsibilities for protecting the privacy of the information being used and exchanged. [...]. To assist with this critical but often daunting task, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), via the Global Justice Information Sharing Initiative (Global), is creating tools and resources to help state, local, and tribal practitioners develop privacy policies. This Guide adds another resource to that toolkit, providing a methodology for state, local, and tribal information-sharing initiatives to analyze risks related to ensuring the privacy of the personally identifiable data that they collect. This risk assessment--more commonly known as a privacy impact assessment or PIA--is a crucial first step in successful privacy policy development."
