Information Flows – the Foundation of Your PIA
Replay Module 2 Recorded Live January 19, 2016
Slides and Audio
What You Should Do Next:
The software that I use most often for information flow diagrams is Microsoft Visio. It is really expensive ($700+) and doesn’t come part of the routine MS office suite anymore – although you might be able to download a trial version long enough to use.
I also use Mindjet Mind Manager – which does mind mapping visuals, with project management, integrates with Outlook tasks / contacts / email, MOS office suite – and has some pretty nifty graphics! The entry price is $349 – still pricey but I put it to good use.
Once you have your information flow diagram mapped out on paper, you can use MS word or MS Excel or even smart art /charts. Don’t get stuck on the technology unless you plan to do a lot of information flow diagrams.
Do you have you a particular project in mind?
Your ‘homework’ for next week is to draft your:
• Project overview
• Personal information inventory
• Information Flow Diagram
• Legal Authority table – we will discuss how to read the legislation at a future module so don’t fret now about the specific legislation references. Transfer the steps of your information flow diagram to the Legal Authority Table. Identify and label the ‘purpose’ as collection, use, or disclosure.
