Workshop A: How to balance privacy & data sharing
Tuesday 16th July 2019, 9:00am – 4:00pm

Balancing the conflicting demands of privacy concerns with demands for increased data sharing is increasingly becoming the need of the hour. There have never been more opportunities for the government to take action to increase the public’s faith in their ability to protect the security and integrity of data. How many opportunities to share data are being overlooked because of fear of privacy breaches? If you’re uncertain about how to walk the fine line of maintaining privacy while maximising the use of shared data, this workshop will give you practical solutions to move towards transparency and performance improvement.

Why attend this workshop?

  • Learning how data sharing can be facilitated by the understanding of data privacy frameworks
  • Filling in the gaps caused by the lack of standardised practices across different levels of government
  • Safeguard against liabilities involved with data sharing
  • Understanding data function as a key aspect of data sharing

What you will take away by attending

  • An overview of the best ways to develop infrastructure for linking and sharing data
  • Practical skills for navigating problems that have not yet been “solved”
  • Context for understanding the risks vs benefits of opening data

* Refreshments & lunch provided
