Performing a Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA)

Ask us a question

Since 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been in force. These rules oversee the handling and processing of personal data. Part of this is a Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA).

The Data Protection Impact Assessment helps you to identify the privacy risks of new or changed data processing in advance, so you can take measures to reduce them. Under the GDPR, performing a DPIA is mandatory if the processing of certain data is likely to pose a high privacy risk to the data subjects. Charco & Dique can help you determine whether a DPIA is necessary, and support you with the implementation.
