The Data Privacy Impact Assessment (“DPIA”) is not only a process to help data controllers (read more link) systematically analyse, identify and minimise the data protection risks of a project or a plan, but is a mandatory requirement before any type of processing that is likely to result in a “high risk to the rights and freedoms of individuals”. Failure to carry out a DPIA when required may give rise to enforcement action from the ICO.
