Training workshop outline

A data protection impact assessment (DPIA) is a key risk assessment process outlined in the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), as it helps organisations make an early evaluation of the impact a business process might have on the privacy of the individuals involved, and ensures compliance with the UK Data Protection Act and EU GDPR.

Organisations are required to perform a DPIA where the processing of personal data involves high risk to the rights and freedoms of individuals. In particular, a DPIA will be required for automated data processing activities, including:

  • Profiling leading to decisions that produce legal effects for the individual.
  • Large-scale processing of certain types of data.
  • Systematic monitoring of a publicly accessible area on a large scale.

The IT Governance DPIA Workshop will explain:

  • How to develop a DPIA;
  • How to implement a DPIA project; and
  • How to monitor the results and take action where required.

Are there any prerequisites for this course?

While there are no formal entry requirements, this course has been designed to meet the needs of delegates who have some knowledge of data protection and the GDPR. We recommend that delegates who require an introduction to the requirements of the GDPR attend our certified GDPR Foundation training course or at minimum take our GDPR and Data Protection Act 2018 Staff Awareness E-learning Course.

Delegates on the certified GDPR Practitioner course do not need to attend the classroom workshop, as the material is already covered in the DPIA section of the GDPR P course. We do however recommend this course for in-house training at your organisation. We can train all the personnel required when completing a DPIA to ensure everyone has the adequate knowledge and understands their role and responsibility with regards to a DPIA.
