Organisations of all kinds are recognising the crucial importance of protecting privacy. Their customers, employees, and other stakeholders demand it. Today, failures to safeguard privacy can destroy organisational reputations — and even the organisations themselves. But implementing effective privacy protection is difficult, and there are few comprehensive resources for those tasked with doing so. In Information Privacy Engineering and Privacy by Design, renowned information technology author William Stallings brings together the comprehensive and practical guidance you need to succeed. Stallings shows how to apply today’s consensus best practices and widely-accepted standards documents in your environment, leveraging policy, procedures, and technology to meet legal and regulatory requirements and protect everyone who depends on you. Like Stallings’ other award-winning texts, this guide is designed to help readers quickly find the information and gain the mastery needed to implement effective privacy.
Coverage includes:
  • Planning for privacy: approaches for managing and controlling the privacy control function; how to define your IT environment’s requirements; and how to develop appropriate policies and procedures for it
  • Privacy threats: Understanding and identifying the full range of threats to privacy in information collection, storage, processing, access, and dissemination
  • Information privacy technology: Satisfying the privacy requirements you’ve defined by using technical controls, privacy policies, employee awareness, acceptable use policies, and other techniques
  • Legal and regulatory requirements: Understanding GDPR as well as the current spectrum of U.S. privacy regulations, with insight for mapping regulatory requirements to IT actions

The Comprehensive Guide to Engineering and Implementing Privacy Best Practices

As systems grow more complex and cybersecurity attacks more relentless, safeguarding privacy is ever more challenging. Organizations are increasingly responding in two ways, and both are mandated by key standards such as GDPR and ISO/IEC 27701:2019. The first approach, privacy by design, aims to embed privacy throughout the design and architecture of IT systems and business practices. The second, privacy engineering, encompasses the technical capabilities and management processes needed to implement, deploy, and operate privacy features and controls in working systems.

In Information Privacy Engineering and Privacy by Design, internationally renowned IT consultant and author William Stallings brings together the comprehensive knowledge privacy executives and engineers need to apply both approaches. Using the techniques he presents, IT leaders and technical professionals can systematically anticipate and respond to a wide spectrum of privacy requirements, threats, and vulnerabilities–addressing regulations, contractual commitments, organizational policies, and the expectations of their key stakeholders.
