Learn to engineer privacy into software, systems, and applications. This book is a resource for developers, engineers, architects, and coders. It provides tools, methodologies, templates, worksheets and guidance on engineering privacy into software - from ideation to release and beyond - whether it is for tools, technologies, products, systems, solutions, or applications. The Privacy Engineer's Companion: A Workbook of Guidance, Tools, Methodologies, and Templates can be used in conjunction with the 2014 ApressOpen bestseller, The Privacy Engineer's Manifesto. It trains and equips users to engage in their own privacy scoping requirements workshops, write privacy use cases, or "stories," for agile development, document UI privacy patterns, conduct assessments; align with product and information security teams. And, perhaps most importantly, the book brings clarity to a vitally important need - the protection of personal information -- that is often shrouded in mystery during the engineering process. Get from policy to code to QA to value, all within these pages. What You'll Learn: How to think of the Fair Information Principles as actionable, normative statements How to decode privacy into functional requirements that can be designed and coded How to prepare and conduct a privacy scoping requirements workshop How to translate privacy requirements into usable stories for agile development How to guide user interface designers in designing privacy controls and interfaces How to access software, systems, applications, and apps to see if the necessary privacy controls are in place How to create privacy engineering documentation (such as data flow diagrams and privacy impact assessments) so that tribal lore is translated into institutional knowledge How to access and ready the enterprise to support privacy engineering Who This Book Is For:This book is designed for a wide audience and to serve multiple stakeholders. This audience consists of anyone involved in architecting, designing, developing, deploying, and reviewing systems, products, processes, applications, and apps that process personal information. This workbook will appeal to software/hardware engineers, technical program and product managers, support and sales engineers, system integrators, IT professionals, lawyers, and information privacy and security professionals.
