When to Conduct a DPIA?

Osprey DPIA - Gravicus

A DPIA should be carried out when new projects are planned, or when planning revisions to existing practices or processes. They should also be flexible enough to allow for changes if the DPIA identifies any privacy issues that need to be addressed at a point in time or in the future.

According to the GDPR, a DPIA should focus on those types of processing operations which are likely to result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons by virtue of their nature, scope, context and purposes. For example:

  • a systematic monitoring of a publicly accessible area on a large scale (e.g. CCTV, drones and body-worn devices)
  • a systematic and extensive evaluation of personal aspects relating to individuals which is based on automated processing and on which decisions are based that produce legal effects concerning individuals, or similarly significantly affect them (e.g. such as automatic refusal of an online credit application or e-recruiting practices without any human intervention)
  • processing on a large scale of special categories of data (e.g. health, religion or ethnic origin) and
  • processing on a large scale of personal data relating to criminal convictions and offences.
