Privacy Impact Assessments (PIA)
The purpose of a Privacy Impact Assessment is to ensure there is no collection, storage, access, use or dissemination of identifiable personal information (and for some organizations business information) that is not both needed and permitted. NTIA produces a Privacy Impact Assessment on systems that contain PII or BII. Our assessments also cover confidentiality, access to data, and use of data.
