Privacy Impact Assessments

July 9, 2018

Privacy Impact Assessments (PIA)

Section 208, Privacy Provisions of the E-Government Act of 2002 requires agencies to conduct privacy impact assessments (PIAs) for electronic information systems and collections, and in general, make the assessment results publicly available. Privacy impact assessments identify and prevent privacy risks. PIAs ensure that:

  • The public is aware of the information we collect about them
  • Any impact these systems have on personal privacy is adequately addressed
  • Only personal information necessary to administer our programs is collected, and no more
  • Adequate system safeguards are in place to protect the personal privacy of individuals

Current SEC PIAs are available below or by request at pia@sec.gov.
