EC Data Protection Impact Assessment Template for Smart Grid and Smart Metering Systems


The Smart Grids Task Force was set up by the European Commission in 2009 to advise on issues related to smart grid deployment and development. One of the working group (WG2) is on security and privacy.

The EC has provided a Data Protection Impact Assessment Template for smart grid and smart metering systems.

The EC has decided to have a two-year trial of the template starting from March 2015.

  • Integrates lots of input from CNIL risk analysis

CNIL Privacy Risk analysis

Context CNIL is the French DPA. It has produced two guidelines in November 2012
  • a methodology for managing the risks that can affect the individuals ;
  •  a catalogue of measures and best practices to treat the risks identified with the methodology.

The two new guides propose a way to build a comprehensive analysis to handle complex personal data processing operations. These documents are primarily intended for use by controllers, data protection officers (DPO) and chief information security officers (CISO). They assist them in creating a rational understanding of the risks arising from the processing of personal data and to choose necessary and sufficient organizational and technical measures to protect privacy.

NIST study on privacy risk management framework for Federal Information Systems


NIST issued in May 2015 a draft report: NISTIR 8062, Privacy Risk Management for Federal Information Systems

The report describes a privacy risk management framework for federal information systems. The framework provides the basis for establishing a common vocabulary to facilitate better understanding of - and communication about - privacy risks and the effective implementation of privacy principles in federal information systems.

Comments are expected by July 13, 2015 at 5:00pm.

  • defines 3 privacy engineering objectives (predictability, manageability, dissociability)
  • focuses on organisational risks (e.g. reputation). Does not focus at this point on risks for citizens 

ENISA 2015 Study: Privacy and Data Protection-by-Design - from Policy to Engineering


Report published in January 2015. Report aims to bridge the gap between the legal framework and the available technological implementation measures. It provides an inventory of the existing approaches and privacy design strategies, and the technical building blocks of various degree of maturity from research and development. Limitations and inherent constraints are presented with recommendations for their mitigation.
