Act Now Training is pleased to announce that it is supporting a new public sector collaboration to co-design and develop a digital approach to Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIAs).
This innovative six month project will help Data Controllers conducting DPIAs to ensure that a ’Data Protection by Design and Default’ approach is embedded into the process. The project is also supported by the Information Commissioner’s Office, NHSX and the Information and Records Management Society.
Greater Manchester Combined Authority, the London Office of Technology and Innovation, Norfolk County Council and the University of Nottingham are leading the project which follows on from a successful alpha phase undertaken last year. A full project overview can be read here: https://cc2i.org.uk/digital-dpia/
Ibrahim Hasan, Director of Act Now Training, said:
“We are really pleased to be supporting this innovative new project alongside the Information Commissioner’s Office, NHSX and the IRMS. A digital DPIA solution will be a valuable tool to help DPOs ensure that privacy and data protection are at the heart of every new data driven project.”
Are you a public authority wishing to a share in this exciting new project and shape the future of the Digital DPIA? Using a proven co-funding approach (similar to crowdfunding, but on a corporate level), the collective is actively looking for partners to join them in this cost-neutral project.
A webinar on the project and approach is being hosted on Wednesday 12th at 2pm. Led by Stephen Girling, Information Governance Project Manager at GMCA and Lianne Hawkins, Head of Service Design at Looking Local, this webinar will cover:
