Demystifying DPIAs

05 July 2017

To date, Privacy Impact Assessments (PIAs) have been widely recommended as a valuable, but not mandatory, tool to reduce privacy risks by a number of data protection authorities across Europe.

However, the introduction of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) from May 2018 will embed a legal requirement for organisations to conduct PIAs where personal data processing activities are likely to result in “high risk” to individuals.

For advice on the steps to take to meet the new GDPR requirements for carrying out PIAs, read our latest article in the Privacy and Data Protection Journal online here, or download directly here. For any questions or advice, please contact us via the details shown.
