So what are Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIAs)?

These are a form of risk assessment.

DPIAs help organisations identify, assess and mitigate or minimise privacy risks with data processing activities and are particularly relevant when introducing any new ‘activity’ – could include, new data processes, systems or technology that involve personal data.

DPIAs also help to ensure that organisations can evidence that they have taken appropriate measures as required by the GDPR.
