Writing for Practical Law – Conducting GDPR Compliant DPIAs

27 September 2017

Philip Nolan authored a Practical Law analysis article entitled, “Conducting a General Data Protection Regulation Compliant Data Protection Impact Assessment”. The article, which is available for download, forms part of Practical Law Company’s 2017 Global Guide to Data Protection.

The GDPR comes into force in 2018. Of particular note is the introduction of mandatory data protection impact assessments, or DPIAs, for certain organisations in order to assess the impact of their processing operations. In this article, Philip outlines the circumstances in which organisations are required to conduct DPIAs and the manner in which DPIAs should be conducted so as to be GDPR compliant.
