This is the second in our series of workshops on how to undertake PIAs.

PIAs will be a mandatory requirement under GDPR and these workshops are intended to support members in understanding the PIA process. Feedback from the first workshop (on 4/10/16) confirmed the interest in this topic.

In this workshop Anne-Marie Bohan, FinTech and Financial Services Partner at Matheson, will discuss the methodology likely to be expected by the ODPC for carrying out PIAs and will share practical pointers and model templates to consider.

The presentation will be followed by a case-study relevant to the financial services sector and will be facilitated by Mary Colhoun, a member of the ACOI Data Protection & Technology Working Group and Director of Data Protection at Eir. There will be an opportunity to ask questions and a model answer will be provided to participants.

This session will be chaired by Aisling Clarke, Director ACOI and Chair of ACOI’s Data Protection & Technology Working Group.
