The Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) Tool helps organisations determine whether a DPIA should be conducted to meet the requirements of the EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).

A DPIA (data protection impact assessment) is required if a process is likely to result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of data subjects – any natural person (i.e. a living individual) whose personal data is processed by the organisation. Data subjects might be employees, contractors, etc., as well as customers.

This particularly includes activities that involve:

  • Using automation to make decisions that could significantly affect an individual;
  • Large-scale processing of sensitive data (health data, political views, sexuality, etc.); and
  • Monitoring public areas on a large scale.

Supervisory authorities will require a DPIA to be conducted for any processes that:

  • Involve the use of new technologies;
  • Use profiling or sensitive data to decide on access to services;
  • Involve profiling individuals on a large scale;
  • Involve biometric data;
  • Involve genetic data;
  • Match data or combine data sets from different sources;
  • Involve ‘invisible processing’;
  • Involve tracking individuals’ location or behaviour;
  • Involve profiling children or targeting marketing and online services at children; and
  • Involve data that might endanger the individual’s physical health or safety in the event of a security breach.

If an organisation is running any process that matches these descriptions, it must conduct a DPIA.

DPIAs are important tools for accountability. They not only help controllers comply with the GDPR’s requirements but also demonstrate that appropriate measures have been taken to ensure that compliance.
