What Are Data Protection Impact Assessments in GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has fundamentally changed how organizations do business in the European Union. It isn’t enough to undergo audits or meet arbitrary security requirements. Like many high-stakes security contexts, GDPR requires a company to dedicate significant time to maintaining data privacy, cybersecurity and consumer rights.
To help address high-risk data processing situations, GDPR may require your business to complete a Data Protection Impact Assessment or a DPIA. For many companies, these are not optional so we will cover the details in this article.
