  • A DPIA is not a one-off exercise it is an ongoing process.
  • Article 35(1) says that you must do a DPIA where a type of processing is likely to result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of individuals
  • Failure to carry out a DPIA when required may leave your organisation open to enforcement action, including a fine of up to £8.7 million, or 2% global annual turnover if higher.
  • If you identify a high risk that you cannot mitigate, you must consult the ICO before starting the processing. They will give you written advice 8-14 weeks on whether you can process the data.
