This module introduces Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIA’s), a core requirement in the General Data Protection Regulation. DPIAs support a risk-based approach to compliance, and they are also a valuable tool for planning, defining, and refining new ideas and projects to avoid problems, re-work, and wasted resources.
Upon completing this module, you will understand:
- What a Data Protection Impact Assessment is
- Why a Data Protection Impact Assessment is done
- When a DPIA is necessary / recommended
- A scalable structured method for conducting a DPIA
