Artificial intelligence and technical and organisational measures for the protection of personal data
Another important aspect is the application of the principle of “
privacy by design
“which involves designing and developing artificial intelligence systems with privacy in mind, from the planning stage. This may include the use of anonymised or pseudonymised data, reducing the amount of personal data collected, and the use of encryption and security technologies.
It is important to develop appropriate procedures and protocols for risk assessment and implementation of security and privacy measures, such as Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA). You may also consider hiring a Data Protection Officer (DPO), who can monitor the use of artificial intelligence and provide advice and assistance on the protection of personal data.
Artificial Intelligence and Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA)
Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) is a mandatory process under the GDPR and is particularly important in the context of the use of artificial intelligence. DPIA is necessary to assess and identify risks and threats to personal data.
When using artificial intelligence, it is important to conduct a DPIA, which can be done in the planning and development stages of the solution. During the assessment, any potential risks related to the processing of personal data, such as uncertainty about the outcome of the IA or uncertainty about the accuracy of the input data, should be analysed.
The DPIA should include an assessment of the potential impact on privacy and data security, as well as an assessment of the risks of discrimination or adverse effects on individual rights and freedoms. In addition, the DPIA should include measures to mitigate the identified risks and an assessment of the effectiveness of these measures.
In general, the DPIA should include a detailed description of the processing of personal data, including the types of data used, the purposes and methods of processing, and an analysis of the associated risks. This should also include an assessment of the impact on individuals as well as an analysis of the technical and organisational measures taken to protect the data.
In conclusion, DPIA is an important tool to assess and identify risks associated with processing personal data using artificial intelligence and to develop appropriate safeguards.
The role of the DPO and the use of artificial intelligence
The role of the DPO(Data Protection Officer) is essential in protecting personal data and assessing the risks associated with the use of artificial intelligence. The DPO is responsible for ensuring that the organisation complies with data protection rules and that the risks associated with the use of artificial intelligence are properly assessed and managed.
The DPO should have a sound knowledge of GDPR as well as artificial intelligence and its use in the organisation. The DPO should ensure that the organisation considers all risks associated with the use of artificial intelligence and that appropriate measures are taken to address them.
The DPO must ensure that the organisation has clear policies and procedures for the protection of personal data and that these are regularly updated. In addition, the DPO should work with other departments in the organisation, including IT, to ensure that all necessary technical and organisational measures are taken to protect personal data and avoid the risks associated with the use of artificial intelligence.
In conclusion, the DPO has a key role in protecting personal data in the use of artificial intelligence and must be involved in all aspects of data protection in the organisation.
