About the Institute of Operational Privacy Design (IOPD)

Incorporated in 2021, the IOPD is dedicated to standardization around “privacy by design.” While done in the spirit of the Foundational Principles of Privacy by Design created by the Ontario Canada’s Information and Privacy Commissioner, the IOPD is focused on operational aspects of building privacy into products, services and business processes. The IOPD is organized in the United States as a non-profit Corporation in the state of Florida.
