The business case for privacy

tobystevens tobystevens Profile: tobystevens


The Information Commissioner’s Office has commissioned a study into the business case for privacy. Building on the Privacy by Design report, this project seeks to research and develop an easily understandable and compelling business case that will help organisations to justify and implement privacy protection within their business processes and systems. This is a very important piece of work – for the majority of organisations, the challenge is understanding why they should provide protection of personal information when there are so many competing calls on their budgets. If we can provide a simple, meaningful business case, then we can correctly prioritise privacy needs against others.

The project team, lead by Dr John Leach and Colin Watson, is now soliciting input, and their discussion document can be found here.
