Course description

  • Understand all the practical knowledge needed to perform a data protection impact assessment (DPIA).
  • Successful completion of this course leads to 7 CPD/CPE points.
  • Please note - This is a practical training workshop and there is no exam.

A data protection impact assessment (DPIA) is a key risk assessment process outlined in the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), as it helps organisations make an early evaluation of the impact a business process might have on the privacy of the individuals involved, and ensures compliance with the UK Data Protection Act and EU GDPR.

Organisations are required to perform a DPIA where the processing of personal data involves high risk to the rights and freedoms of individuals. In particular, a DPIA will be required for automated data processing activities, including:

  • Profiling leading to decisions that produce legal effects for the individual.
  • Large-scale processing of certain types of data.
  • Systematic monitoring of a publicly accessible area on a large scale.

The IT Governance DPIA Workshop will explain:

  • How to develop a DPIA;
  • How to implement a DPIA project; and
  • How to monitor the results and take action where required.

DPIA training workshop benefits:
