Training course outline

A DPIA is a risk assessment process outlined in the GDPR. A DPIA helps an organisation make an early evaluation of the impact a business process might have on the privacy of the individuals involved and ensures compliance with the DPA 2018 and the UK GDPR. Organisations are also required to conduct a DPIA where the processing of personal data involves a high risk to the rights and freedoms of individuals.

This fully accredited, self-paced online course will teach you the knowledge and skills to plan and perform a DPIA aligned to the requirements of the GDPR.

The course covers:

  • The principles and legal requirements of a DPIA;
  • Developing a DPIA procedure;
  • Implementing efficient project processes; and
