ABSTRACT
The changing global business environment and continued introduction of new technologies are significantly affecting organizations' privacy practices. In this environment, privacy-enhancing technology (PET) often becomes a key to protecting personal information. A considerable amount of literature has discussed PET technologies and their benefits. However, the lack of clear organizational accountability can become a roadblock to effectively designing and implementing PET solutions. For organizations that don't employ these solutions, the result is increased regulatory and privacy risk and potential costs related to privacy breaches. Establishing a multidisciplinary privacy committee with clear roles and responsibilities assigned to various members is a possible approach to help address accountability.
