EU: Data Protection Impact Assessments under the GDPR: questions unanswered?

25 May 2018 is just around the corner, and with it comes the application of the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) (‘GDPR’). The GDPR brings onto the scene a set of novelties, which leave a series of questions still unanswered. One of the novelties are Data Protection Impact Assessments (‘DPIAs’), which have been made mandatory in some circumstances under the GDPR. Although many organisations have been performing these prior to the existence of the GDPR, its requirement will have a particularly large impact on data protection governance within companies and will raise a significant number of complex questions, as highlighted by the Article 29 Working Party’s (‘WP29’) recent focus on the matter.
