DPIAs – All you need to know about Data Protection Impact Assessments
Across your business many teams need to know about DPIAs. From HR teams through to Marketing teams. Especially when considering new technology and new systems.
Sometimes a DPIA will be mandatory, but looking at the data protection impact of any new project can highlight risks before they materialise. This ensures mitigating measures can be put in place from the outset.
The ICO is warning not enough DPIAs are being carried out in the AdTech space. The regulator has also pointed to areas where marketing teams should be carrying them out (in the draft ‘Direct Marketing’ code). For example:
- large-scale profiling
- data matching
- list brokering
- online advertising
- tracking geolocation & behaviour
In this webinar hosted by Bristows LLP on 8th April 2020 we focused on the What? When? How? Who? and How? of DPIAs.
