Anyone tasked with defining PIA requirements through policy, rule, or law or simply with conducting an individual PIA will be richly rewarded by reading this volume."

This volume provides a rich set of information and reflections, experiences and examples on PIA, which makes it a truly outstanding contribution in the field-both for practitioners and for academics working in this area." (Nils Zurawski, International Data Privacy Law, Vol. 2 (4), November, 2012) "Taking a truly international perspective, and with contributions from a large number of leading practitioners, compliance leaders and academics, this publication is in turn historical record, academic study and empirical evaluation. ... It is unquestionably an interesting read, with a wealth of experience presented from other countries and multinational companies in relation to the practical realities of using PIAs. ... this book is likely to be seen as a highly valuable guide."
