What is a DPIA?

A Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) helps to reduce data protection risk. This is necessary when a project involves processing of personal data.

A DPIA:

  • suggests the most effective way to comply with our data protection obligations
  • helps to meet expectations of privacy

Completing a DPIA reduces costs and reputational damage through:

  • considering the likelihood and severity of any impact
  • identifying and fixing problems at an early stage
