Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) Explained

Understanding DPIA

A Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) is a crucial process aimed at identifying and mitigating data protection risks associated with a project.

When to Conduct a DPIA

Organizations should perform a DPIA for processing activities likely to pose a high risk to individuals, including:

  • Systematic and extensive profiling
  • Automated decision-making for significant decisions
  • Processing special category or criminal offence data on a large scale
  • Utilizing new technologies

Additional instances requiring a DPIA may include:

  • Processing biometric data
  • Combining, comparing, or matching data from various sources
  • Implementing automated decision-making systems

Legal Requirement

Privacy by design and data minimization are now explicitly mandated by the GDPR, aligning with existing data protection principles.
