How to implement a Privacy Impact Assessment Workshop

31 October 2019, 14:00-17:30


This half day workshop will take place alongside the Biometrics Institute Congress and Biometrics Week 2019.

The workshop will help you clarify your ideas about privacy management in your organisation, looking at good practice implementation and how to position your organisation at the forefront of the biometrics industry. It will provide answers to the following questions:

  • Do you know how to deal with privacy and artificial intelligence issues?
  • How to deal with potential losses of private data?
  • When does consent become important?


  • Any senior officer of an organisation in both the public and private sector.
  • Any key information officer who has responsibility as the manager or sub-manager of privacy issues.
  • Any senior technical person who will be a decision maker or have responsibility for the planning, roll-out and management of a biometric based business system  

The Biometrics Institute in consultation with its members has developed a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) Model Template which was an output of our original work on a potential Trustmark. A PIA is a process which helps organisations plan their privacy policies and practices so that risks are anticipated and the privacy of people dealing with that organisation is protected.

The very interactive course will help you develop a PIA tool for planning, rolling out and managing a business development which contains a biometric. It will take participants through a range of scenarios discussing how they potentially impact on privacy and how this could be managed. This is a must-attend event for anyone involved in the planning or implementation of a biometric system providing thought-provoking debate and guidance.

All PIAs should be conducted at the planning stage of any new business development and it is especially important to do this when introducing biometrics.
