What is ‘privacy by default’ and ‘privacy by design’?

These two principles are intended to promote the consideration of privacy as a fundamental component of an organization’s operations. In practice, ‘privacy by default’ would mean a new user’s account would be preset with the strictest privacy settings. The user may choose to relax those settings later. ‘Privacy by design’ would make privacy a priority across an organization, not the exclusive purview of an assigned department.
