How to implement a Privacy Impact Assessment Workshop

24 May 2019, 09:00-12:00


This workshop will help you clarify your ideas about privacy management, looking at good practice implementation and how to position your organisation at the forefront of the biometrics industry. It will answer questions like:

a) How should I deal with privacy and artificial intelligence issues?
b) How can I deal with potential losses of private data?
c) When does consent become important?



The Biometrics Institute, in consultation with member experts in privacy and biometrics, has developed a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) model template. 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.

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.

The interactive half-day 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.

  • 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

  • Why a biometrics PIA?
  • Who should be involved in the PIA process?
  • Setting up a PIA
  • Conducting a PIA
  • Working through a model PIA in detail and how could this relate to your own environment?
  • Summary and final questions
