If the processing of data is likely to pose a high risk to individuals, then the requirement to complete a DPIA.
DPIAs are particularly recommended when implementing new IT systems. In addition, if the data is going to be used or shared for a new purpose.
A DPIA should be carried out whenever there is a plan to carry out “high risk” processing. This includes the profiling of individuals and processing special categories of data, on a large scale. If you believe or you would like us to assess your risk, please call us on 03333 22 1011. Alternatively, you can book a DPIA consultation here so that we can advise on how best to proceed.
If we deem the risk to be too high, we will issue a written warning not to process the data.
Once the DPIA proves necessary, we will guide you through the process and deliver the DPIA for you.
