The requirement for a privacy impact assessment (PIA) or data protection impact assessment (DPIA) was introduced with the General Data Protection Regulation (Art. 35 of the GDPR). This refers to the obligation of the controller to conduct an impact assessment and to document it before starting the intended data processing. It’s also required when major changes or upgrades are made to systems processing personal data.
This spreadsheet is a detailed template for conducting the required assessment. We also include a process guide diagram to help you implement the PIA more effectively.
