We are pleased to announce Meeting 2 of the Sensitive Data Community of Practice (CofP) which will provide an opportunity for anyone interested to discuss the challenges and strategies for managing this type of data. The idea for a Sensitive Data Community of Practice came out of the 'Sensitive data: how do you do yours?' eResearch Australasia Birds of a Feather session (2018), where several people in the room indicated an interest in continuing a discussion around sensitive data. See the Sensitive Data community document.
This month, Dr Phillip Gould, from the Office of the National Data Commissioner will provide a short presentation. This is timely due to the release on 19 March of the ONDC's release - Building Trust through the Data Sharing Principles, and the Data Sharing Principles Best Practice Guide - Sharing Data Safely.
Who: Dr. Phillip Gould, Assistant Secretary, Office of the National Data Commissioner, Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet
Title: Key reforms to Australia’s national data system
The Office of the National Data Commissioner will be responsible for implementing a simpler data sharing and release framework to break down barriers which prevent efficient use and reuse of data, while maintaining strong security and privacy protection that the community expects. A new Data Sharing and Release Act will streamline the processes for sharing public sector data and improve data safeguards.
Then there will be plenty of time for discussion and Q&A.
Who would benefit from attending
For those in the Research, Government or Medical community who work with sensitive data, but wish to better manager or share that data safely.
