What is a Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA)?

With the new regulations taking place in May, the GDPR requires a Data Protection impact assessment (DPIA). A data protection impact assessment helps identify the risks when handling personal data and provides a structured process for your company. This assessment increases the transparency and provides a structure for unknown processes that involve dealing with personal data that reduces the risk of non-compliance with GDPR.
