Privacy by Design

A design framework under VSD (Values Sensitive Design).

Privacy By DESIGN
Privacy by Design(PbD) is a design framework udder VSD _ Values Sensitive Design. Privacy by design is an approach to systems engineering initially developed by Ann Cavoukian and formalized in a joint report on privacy-enhancing technologies by a joint team of the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario (Canada), the Dutch Data Protection Authority and the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research in 1995. This a frameworkis largely based on proactively embedding privacy into the design and operation of products and services both non IT and IT systems, networked infrastructure, and business practices.PbD calls for privacy to be taken into account throughout the whole engineering process. Privacy by design is based on seven "foundational principles".
  • Proactive not reactive; preventative not remedial
  • Privacy as the default setting
  • Privacy embedded into design
  • Full functionality – positive-sum, not zero-sum
  • End-to-end security – full lifecycle protection
  • Visibility and transparency – keep it open
  • Privacy by Design goes well beyond accepted fair information practices and privacy standards, virtually assuring regulatory compliance—no matter where you operate.
