Definition of Privacy Assessment

Privacy Assessment is a process to examine the different elements of a website or online service that compromise users' privacy.

It requires an evaluation of risks, potential harms, and any other privacy impacting events that may arise from the collection, use and sharing of personal data on the website.

Through conducting a Privacy Assessment, organizations can identify any potential privacy threats and take the necessary steps to mitigate them.

Ultimately, Privacy Assessments help to ensure compliance with regulations such as GDPR and enhance user trust in the website or service by providing transparency about how their data is handled.
