Privacy engineers are an integral part of ensuring that privacy risk is mitigated and privacy implications are addressed. The efficacy of privacy engineers is fundamentally dependent on their ability to influence. The cross-functional nature of privacy engineering dictates that privacy risk and impact assessments shall consider third-party risk, legal and compliance requirements, security as well as business drivers to build a culture of privacy by design over time.
Security plays a significant role in implementing risk mitigation strategies to address privacy risk. While privacy principles are high level, a common governing framework integrating privacy and cybersecurity aligned with the enterprise-level risk management framework can assure that privacy considerations are embedded at the design phase and monitored on an ongoing basis.
