Privacy Criteria

Discussion of the privacy audit criteria. OECD has privacy criteria, eight principles, collection limitation , data quality purpose specification, use limitation, security safeguards, openness participation, accountability. AI: Ken to send the text and the link to the test. "The privacy of the subject is respected" - high level mission statement.

RGW: we should keep an open mind whether existing criteria can simply be used as is, many existing criteria can be used for privacy when viewed correctly.

Andrew: a quick survey of what's out there, gap analysis, begin work.

Ken: what others do we know of?

Andrew mentions privacy by designengineering principles, FIPPS, FICAM, FCC's privacy rules.

Scott: is this worth trying to get KI funding for?

Andrew: do we need a scope or charter for this? Ken: will undertake to do that.

RGW: doesn't see the need for it. IS there a call from the marketplace for such a thing?

RGW: do agree that there needs to ba focus on how to interpret generic controls when you have privacy as a focus. Maybe approach is not to have privacy criteria per se, but to profile the criteria. Did the FIPPS principles, repurpose of existing SAC criteria. There's a gap in KI's ability to meet FICAM requirements,

Ken cites the reference to privacy requirements in TFPAP 2.0.2, 2014:

Andrew: controlling documents - ICAM approved submission page: ICAM Approved Submission

Scott and RGW mention that privacy criteria are part of CSPs responsibility to cover compliance since that is not covered by the SAC. RGW creating a profile, to apply criteria in a specific context. Doesn't diminish criteria, shows how to use them In a particular context. Maximizes reuse.

Christine: IDESG is looking at complementary programs such as KI, for each program, come up with a way of on boarding the participants that are certified at a certain level.
