What is the nature, scope, context and purpose of the data processing?
Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) identifies and minimise risks from data processing. Help you analyse, identify and minimise any data protection risks of a project.
This is part of your accountability obligations under the GDPR. DPIA should help guide you to determine whether or not the level of risk is acceptable and make sure it is minimised.
What kind of "risk"?There is no explicit definition of ‘risk’ in the GDPR.
Assessing the level of risk involves looking at both the likelihood and the severity of any potential harm and “risks to the rights and freedoms of natural persons”.
Is data processing necessary? Proportioned to purpose. How will ensure compliance with data protection principles?
