Lower Saxony: LfD Niedersachsen publishes DPIA assessment scheme

The Lower Saxony data protection authority ('LfD Niedersachsen') published, on 11 February 2021, a detailed assessment scheme aimed to help companies understand whether a Data Protection Impact Assessment ('DPIA') should be carried out. In particular, the scheme includes a checklist according to Article 35(4) of the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) ('GDPR'), outlining examples of processing activities which are subject to a DPIA, and a comprehensive glossary of the most important terms, such as biometric data, new technologies, and profiling.
