The IBM Enterprise Privacy Architecture (EPA) is a methodology for enterprises to provide an enhanced and well-defined level of privacy to their customers. EPA is structured in four building blocks. The privacy regulation analysis identifies and structures the applicable regulations. The management reference model enables an enterprise to define and enforce an enterprise privacy strategy and the resulting privacy practices. The privacy agreement framework is a methodology for privacy-enabling business process re-engineering. It outputs a detailed model of the privacy-relevant players and activities as well as the privacy policies that govern these activities. The technical reference architecture defines the technology needed for implementing the identified practices.
