IEEE Data Privacy Process Standard

The IEEE is working on a new series of standards, the P7000 series, looking at data ethics in systems development. P7002, the Data Privacy Process Standard, is looking at how organizations should manage privacy risk at the organizational and systems level. The standard aims to detail the process by which an organization can identify their privacy requirements, how they use these to develop their organizational privacy framework, how they then characterize their systems, and finally how they develop and manage those systems to meet their privacy requirements. The project has been running for some time, and while Privitar has been involved since the start, in early 2019 Privitar’s Head of Policy took on the role of technical editor, working with the group’s experts to lead the drafting process and run the drafting subgroup. We hope the standard will be available in late 2020. Learn more about IEEE P7002.
