Conducting a Legitimate Interest Assessment (LIA) is best practice. It will help you to meet your obligations under the ‘accountability principle’.
An LIA encourages you to ask yourself the right questions about your processing. You will be able to objectively consider what the reasonable expectations of individuals are and any impact of the processing on them. Conducting an LIA also helps you ensure that your processing is lawful.
Recording your LIA also helps you demonstrate compliance with the principles and appropriate organisational measures in line with your accountability obligations under Articles 5(2) and 24.
