Difference PII VS Personal Data
From IPEN Wiki
- PII is a US term that has a much narrower definition than the EU personal data definition.
- the two terms have a different legal scope of what is covered
- We should use personal data for widest possible coverage
- PII is a smaller subset of personal data (“identifiable” vs “real world”).
- PII is internationally well defined in ISO/IEC 29100
- don’t think that “Personal Data” vs “PII” is a difference that matters vis-a-vis the standard
- PII and personal data actually are synonyms under some definitions.
- personal data has a very broad meaning (as does "PII" as defined by the US GSA and by ISO)
