Our data protection impact assessment (DPIA) summaries

What DPIA is

This is a tool which can help organisations identify the most effective way to comply with their data protection obligations and meet individuals’ expectations of privacy.

An effective DPIA will allow organisations to identify and fix problems at an early stage, reducing the associated costs and damage to reputation, which might otherwise occur.

To determine if a DPIA is needed, a privacy screening template is completed using questions based on ICO published guidance. The responses are reviewed by the individual responsible for information governance and the information asset owner to determine if a DPIA is needed.

If there is no personal data involved or there are no high risks before any privacy controls are taken account of, then a DPIA will not normally be needed.
