Data Privacy Impact Assessments
What are data privacy impact assessments?
The purpose of a data protection impact assessment (DPIA) is to help organizations identify, analyze, and minimize privacy risks associated with user data collection, processing, usage, storage, and sharing. It's one of the essential elements needed to adhere to the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). You can evaluate a data processing activity, identify any privacy issues, and control them before you begin with the use of a DPIA. It's essential for companies that process data and appreciate the privacy of their clients or partners. It increases internal organization awareness of privacy and data protection problems and ensures that all personnel working on projects take privacy into account from the beginning. Also helps prove adherence to obligations and guidelines for data protection.
