Partnering for privacy
AvePoint and the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) have developed the AvePoint Privacy Impact Assessment (APIA), which will be exclusively distributed by IAPP to the global privacy community. APIA is an educational solution that helps enterprises understand and automate the process of evaluating, assessing and reporting on the privacy implications of their enterprise IT systems.
AvePoint reports APIA is designed to:
Comply with privacy regulations--APIA helps organizations analyze how personal information is handled and comply with privacy impact assessments (PIA) required by global privacy legislation.
Automate privacy impact assessments--its form-based survey system provides built-in workflows as well as configurable questions and answers to simplify the process for privacy, security, IT and business owners of enterprise systems to interact and communicate to conduct comprehensive PIAs.
Report on PIAs for stakeholder review--APIA automatically generates PIA reports in accordance with organization-specific privacy risk analysis for easier distribution to chief privacy officers for review.
Extend to security and vulnerability assessments--APIA is fully extensible and customizable for security and vulnerability assessments, as well as requirements from other quality assurance and/or records management review.
As part of this release, the IAPP and AvePoint have also created an APIA Community Portal for privacy professionals to contribute questions and share best practices with one another in order to build a repository of knowledge and generally accepted questions for commissioning PIAs.
