Data Protection Framework And Implementation

Most organizations have privacy policies, but many have limited capacity to implement them. Privacy policy should stand at the centre of a comprehensive framework that covers the entire data life cycle, into which all employees and all business operations are thoroughly integrated. 

The creation of a data protection culture starts with making data protection one of the organisation’s values and setting out the overarching direction for the organisation’s data protection efforts. This is achieved through a Data Protection Policy and associated implementation framework.

Our expert privacy consultants can deliver: 

  1. A Data Protection Framework, which will include tailored privacy, security, and risk policies and procedures; 
  2. Customer or service user Terms of Use; 
  3. A data breach management policy and protocol; and
  4. A data governance workplan

We can also: 

  • Build data protection training material for your organization, including modules specific to privacy, security, and risk management.
  • Build a Board reporting framework, including reporting plans.  

Privacy Impact Assessment

A Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) is a risk management process that helps enterprises ensure they meet legislative requirements and identify the impacts their programs and activities will have on individuals’ privacy. PIAs are a particularly important safeguard for new initiatives involving personal data; for example, a company adopting a new customer relations management solution or data analytics tool. KI Design can conduct both corporate and project PIAs. 

 Each assessment will: 

  1. Examine data flows and what information assets are collected, retained, used, and disclosed. 
  2. Review flows against legal and corporate compliance requirements. 
  3. Review the risk associated with all technical components of the organization or project under assessment. 

Basic Privacy Review

A KI Design privacy expert will review your organization’s existing Privacy Policy and related documentation; recommend and consult on changes and additions; then draft these changes and additions to ensure compliance with applicable privacy legislation. As required, we will create for your organization: 

  1. A Privacy Policy 
  2. Service user or patient Terms of Use; 
  3. A data breach management policy and protocol 
  4. Training and educational materials for board, executives, and staff
