What’s Privacy by Design / Default?

Privacy by Design is about how your organisation considers data protection, before implementing a process, whether it’s technical or organisational.

Think about the idiom “closing the stable door after the horse has bolted”.

What you shouldn’t be doing is thinking about the privacy aspect late on in the process. The Data Controller should be considering privacy from the beginning and making sure that everyone involved with Personal Data understands, from Day One, that privacy is fundamental to the systems and processes.

Privacy by Default

The GDPR also talks about Privacy by Default and this goes hand in hand with Privacy by Design. Privacy by Default  means that organisations, and the Data Controller specifically, must ensure that, by default, only people who need to access Personal Data are able to, and that they should only  see the data they need to.

This is a massive culture change for most organisations as, in the past, it’s been a bit of a free for all, with everyone having access to Personal Data.
