Privacy Audits

Privacy audits are procedures to ensure that your organization’s goals and promises of privacy and confidentiality are supported by its practices. As a result, they protect confidential information from abuse and the organization from liability and public relations problems.

A privacy audit provides a library an opportunity to examine:

  • How privacy matters are handled at all levels
  • The flow and storage of data
  • The role data plays within the organization
  • Staff training about privacy matters
  • Existing and needed privacy policies
