What is a DPIA?
A Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) is a process that organizations use to identify, assess, and mitigate potential privacy risks in relation to their data processing activities.
DPIAs are a key tool for ensuring compliance with data protection laws such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and are typically conducted when an organization is planning to introduce a new system, process, or service that involves the processing of personal data.

Why Conduct a DPIA?
By conducting a DPIA, organizations can identify and address potential privacy risks before they become a problem. This can help to build trust with customers, employees, and other stakeholders, and can also help organizations to demonstrate compliance with data protection laws.
Typical DPIA Process
- Data mapping: This involves identifying all the personal data that will be processed, including the categories of data, sources of data, and how the data will be collected, stored, and used.
- Risk assessment: This involves assessing the potential risks to individuals' rights and freedoms that may arise from the processing of personal data.
- Risk mitigation: This involves identifying and implementing measures to mitigate the identified risks.
- Consultation: This involves consulting with relevant stakeholders, such as data subjects, data protection authorities, and other relevant parties.
- Documentation: This involves documenting the DPIA process, including the findings of the risk assessment and the measures taken to mitigate risks.
