PII Valuation Worksheet

A PDF of the PII Field to Value table on pages 79 to 80 of the 'Personal Information Security & Systems Architecture' book, with on the back details of how you utilise the table to value your PII data.

The idea is you print this out and laminate it, so it makes it an easy to use point of access independent of the book - also saving wear and tear on the book if you have the physical copy. If you are using the eBook, it will save you being dependent on an eBook reader to use the table. It's just easier all round to use a printed full-size copy.

Purchasing this PDF gives you a licence for you to use directly as part of your work, it does not give you the rights to reproduce and copy for others to use.
