The key topics of focus include:

  • According to the latest public consultation what steps must be taken and how far are we with the creation of an appropriately safeguarded, joined-up and interoperable data infrastructure?
  • What were the first steps taken by Data Standards Authority (DSA) to make data shareable and accessible across government services?

  • How to leverage a shared data model and support an open and transparent data infrastructure across the government?

  • How should the risks be managed to protect both internal and external data through a robust governance process?

  • How to ensure the use of ethical open and consistent data to design better services around user needs?

  • Updated Data Ethics Framework: How to ensure every proposed approach is proportionate and ethical? Is the proposed right for the purpose and better value than other solutions?
