Risk, Harms and Benefits Assessment Tool


The Data Innovation Risk, Harms and Benefits Assessment Tool is an initial assessment of potential risks for data use that includes seven guiding checkpoints to understand: the “Data Type” involved in the data analytics process, the “Risks and Harms” of data use, the mode and legitimacy of “Data Access”, the “Data Use”, the adequacy of “Data Security”, the adequate level of “Communication and Transparency” and the due diligence on engagement of “Third Parties”.

The Assessment contains guiding comments for each checkpoint and its questions are grounded in the key international data privacy and data protection principles and concepts such as Purpose Specification, Purpose Compatibility, Data Minimization, Consent Legitimacy, Lawfulness and Fairness of data access and use.
