Data Protection Impact Assessments
The Information Commissioners Office and Data Security and Protection Toolkit have identified Data Protection Impact Assessments as a key tool in addressing confidentiality and privacy concerns. The resulting increased confidence and participation in NHS data collection and services have led to Data Protection Impact Assessments forming part of the key requirements for the Data Security and Protection Toolkit.
A Data Protection Impact Assessment is a process to help identify and minimise the data protection risks of a project.
We must do a Data Protection Impact Assessment for processing that is likely to result in a high risk to individuals. This includes some specified types of processing e.g. special categories of personal data – health data.
It is also good practice to do a Data Protection Impact Assessment for any other major project which requires the processing of personal data or if you are making a significant change to an existing process.
