The processes and practices implemented by organisations should reflect the methodology of using a Privacy by Design approach to business systems. Undertaking a PIA/DPIA is not a mandatory part of the GDPR, but in doing so, organisations can show that they are compliant with the Act.

  • Determining the risks and effects.

  • Evaluating protections and alternative processes to mitigate potential privacy risks.
