Overview

A data protection impact assessment (DPIA) is a method of reviewing the risks associated with certain data processing activities.

Doing DPIAs

Undertaking a DPIA requires objectivity and a detachment from the data processing and it often requires a dogmatic persistence to get to the bottom of things both with colleagues and external suppliers or partners.  Outsourcing DPIAs makes sense engaging experienced data privacy professionals to ask the tough questions and objectively review and present the risks.  Our consultants are experienced in reviewing data processing operations.  They know the questions to ask and they know when they are not getting the answers they need to identify the risks.  They will engage with your staff, suppliers and customer groups holding meetings, conference calls and reviewing technical documentation to ensure a thorough understanding of all aspects of the project, its proposed data processing activities, and compliance risks.
