Data privacy risk measures the likelihood of misuse or unauthorized access of personal data. Under GDPR, both the controller and processor need to understand and minimize risk. Data protection impact assessments help organizations identify and quantify risks for remediation and disclosure to customers. Privacy impact assessments (PIAs) provide the same intelligence to organizations, revealing where and what privacy risks exist.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in the United States has developed a privacy risk framework.
