A comprehensive guide to navigate the 7 principles of Privacy by Design

Privacy by Design (or “PbD”) originated in the early 1990s and is an engineering and strategic management approach that allows you to selectively and sustainably minimize information system’s privacy risks through technical and organizational controls. Since the introduction of the GDPR, the philosophy of PbD is also reflected in article 25, requiring organizations as data controllers to implement data protection by design and by default.
