Data protection impact assessment (DPIA)

Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) is mandatory in case of automated processing and profiling, processing on a large scale of special categories of data or systematic monitoring of a publicly accessible area on a large scale. We can create a DPIA system or conduct a DPIA for you.

If a type of data processing is likely to result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, the controller is required to carry out the assessment of the impact of the envisaged processing operations on the protection of personal data - Data protection impact assessment (DPIA). Performing a DPIA is mandatory in case of automated processing and profiling, processing on a large scale of special categories of data or  systematic monitoring of a publicly accessible area on a large scale.

The Data Protection Impact Assessment should contain a systematic description of the processing procedures and its purposes, assessment of necessity and proportionality, risk assessment and description of measures to reduce the risk of processing. GDPR prescribes these elements for a reason, so make sure to include all of them in your DPIA.

We can set up a DPIA system in your company or organization, and organize training seminars to teach you how to correctly carry out the DPIA and document the entire process or we can perform a DPIA on your behalf for all sort of specific situations. It is very important to know that the results of the DPIA will provide you with answers and directions to take to mitigate risk or correctly decide when to contact the Croatian Personal Data Protection Agency (AZOP).

The DPIA is an integral part of the personal data management and protection system, for anyone who processes special categories of personal data (children, health-related data, political or religious orientation and other sensitive data categories). Our DPIA system enables your employees or data protection officer (DPO) to easily carry out a DPIA, properly document it, and make appropriate recommendations, in accordance with the GDPR.
