Our data protection impact assessment (DPIA) summaries

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 and;
- identifying and fixing problems at an early stage.
