Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIAs)

Under GDPR, it is the responsibility of our Trust, not just to be compliant with the law, but to be able to actively demonstrate compliance. One of the key ways of demonstrating compliance with Data Protection by Design is through the use of DPIAs.

What is a DPIA?

A DPIA is a screening tool which is designed to help organisations systematically analyse, identify and minimise the data protection risks of a project or plan. It allows issues to be recognised as early as possible and addressed appropriately, which demonstrates that data protection has been considered throughout the development of any new or changes to existing activities.
