Safely Sharing Data
How to share data between different parts of government in a responsible, transparent, yet secure way.
Effectively sharing data between different parts of government can significantly benefit citizens and businesses and is critical to delivering many public services. The challenge is how to deliver this function in a responsible, transparent, yet secure way. Information governance leaders must find ways to enable the better use of data by addressing technical, ethical and legal issues, with a focus on:
- Making better use of data as an enabler for public services, particularly where those services cross organisational boundaries transforming the way that government’s major repositories of data are stored and managed.
- Improving data discovery tools for users both within and beyond government.
- Make better use of data to improve decision making, by building and expanding data science and analytical capability across government, for analysts and non-analysts alike.
