The Seven Categories of Privacy

When considering approaches to address potential privacy threats, you must acknowledge that privacy has multiple dimensions, and those dimensions can be used to define taxonomies of privacy problems, intrusions or categories. Enterprises must consider and address these seven categories of privacy with security controls and with appropriate privacy practices. Keep in mind that these categories are not mutually exclusive; many of the examples and real-life situations, in general, will fall into more than one category. Risk related to each privacy category can be identified with the use of an effective privacy impact assessment (PIA).
