Data Protection Impact Assessment Screening Checklist
Data Protection Impact Assessments are an important part of data protection compliance, particularly the data protection by design and default approach advocated by the UK's data protection legislation (including the UK GDPR and Data Protection Act 2018). When a project is likely to result in a high risk to the individuals whose personal data will ultimately be involved, the law requires that you carry out a DPIA. Even when a DPIA is not legally required, it is still a useful exercise when planning a project that will involve the use of personal data.
In simple terms, a DPIA helps you to identify and minimise the risks associated with personal data and data protection in your project. Not only should you identify the risks themselves, but also the likelihood and severity of them.
This Data Protection Impact Assessment Screening Checklist is designed to help you decide whether or not a DPIA is necessary.
