This standard defines requirements for a systems/software engineering process for privacy oriented considerations regarding products, services, and systems utilizing employee, customer or other external user's personal data. It extends across the life cycle from policy through development, quality assurance, and value realization. It includes a use case and data model (including metadata). It applies to organizations and projects that are developing and deploying products, systems, processes, and applications that involve personal information. By providing specific procedures, diagrams, and checklists, users of this standard will be able to perform a conformity assessment on their specific privacy practices. Privacy impact assessments (PIAs) are described as a tool for both identifying where privacy controls and measures are needed and for confirming they are in place.
