Data Protection Impact Assessments
In situations where data processing is likely to result in high risk to individuals, such as when a new technology is deployed or where special categories of data are processed on a large scale, the GDPR requires organisations to conduct a Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA). A DPIA should include:
- A systematic description of processing operations, including the purpose for the processing
- An assessment of the necessity and proportionality of the processing operations
- An assessment of the risks to the rights and freedoms of individuals
- Measures to address identified risks, including safeguards and mechanisms to ensure the protection of personal data
