Data Protection Impact Assessment


The Data Protection Impact Assesment (DPIA) is necessary for any ongoing/planned processing tasks in your business process if it falls under a high risk category. The DPIA model to the right captures the risk criteria that determine whether the processing task falls under a high risk category according to the Article 29 Working Party Guidelines for DPIA. Generally, multiple criteria need to be applicable for a task to be considered high risk.

The DPIA process model below describes the process to be used to determine whether a DPIA is necessary and how to apply the DPIA model. If a DPIA is deemed to be necessary, the report must be prepared fulfilling all the criteria in the modeled artifact.
