Privacy monitoring technology in information technology systems is now necessary in order to ensure compliance with stated privacy policies, especially in the customer information management systems in enterprises such as Customer Relationship Management (CRM). Privacy policies allow organizations to control the use of personally identifiable information (PII) according to individual choices. The IBM Tivoli Privacy Manager (TPM) provides server support for creating, deploying, and administering privacy policies as well as for checking conformance to policies and for logging auditable data on data accesses. However, applications using TPM must use an agent that is able to intercept each access of PII and interact with a TPM server for auditing and enforcement. This is the function of a privacy monitor.
