EU GDPR Privacy by Design Framework Foundational Principles

  • 1

    Proactivity and Prevention

    Privacy by design approaches the issues of privacy risks proactively. The issues must be prevented before they occur, and steps should be taken to mitigate the potential risks even before they become apparent. Poor security and privacy practices must also be recognized and improved early before they do any harm.
  • 2

    End-to-End Security

    Security and privacy of data must be ensured from the point of collection to the eventual destruction of data. At every point of in the data lifecycle, it must be continuously protected and accounted for. The aim is to ensure there are no gaps in data security.
  • 3

    Privacy as the Default

    The principle of privacy by default mandates that the users’ data must be protected without requiring their input. Individuals should not have to do anything to ensure their data is safe – it should be safe by default.
  • 4

    Full Functionality – Positive – Sum

    Privacy by design should not compete against design objectives and technical capabilities of the product. Instead, it should transform the non-privacy compliant objectives in such a way that their value increases due to improved privacy and security.
  • 5

    Visibility and Transparency

    The key to accountability (and GDPR compliance) is transparency. All stakeholders, partners, and coprocessors must be vetted, audited, and open to external verification.
  • 6

    Privacy Embedded into the Design

    Privacy must be embedded into technologies, operations, and information architecture in a holistic, integrative, and creative way.
  • 7

    Respect for Privacy

    The GDPR demands that individuals’ rights be respected by requiring their consent before their data will be used, giving them access to their data at all times, and allowing for easy consent withdrawal.
