Data Sharing in the Public Sector
Courses take place in:
The government sees data sharing as an important tool to improve and personalise public services, fight crime, and tackle benefit fraud. Public bodies face regular dilemmas over whether to share data, to what extent, with whom, in what circumstances, and subject to what safeguards.
This training course, which includes instruction on the provisions of the upcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation, as well as the implications of Brexit, examines the key principles involved and answers the following questions:
- what are the benefits of data sharing, and how much should you share the personal data you hold?
- what are the challenges of data sharing in terms of maintaining public trust, and respecting personal privacy?
- what powers exist to share data?
- what are the conditions under which data may be shared? What restrictions exist, and which exemptions may apply?
- what do you tell those whose data are shared, and how do you respond to subject access requests from individuals?
- how do you write your own data sharing agreement, and what should it contain?
- what other arrangements need to be in place before you share data?
The session will also give delegates guidance on:
- the Information Commissioner's Data Sharing Code of Practice
- Privacy Impact Assessments
- monetary penalties for serious breaches of the Data Protection Principles
- the impact on data sharing of the "non disclosure provisions" and exemptions under the DPA
This session enables those attending to understand how to approach the sharing of data in the public sector. It includes discussion of a number of practical ‘real life’ examples and the issues involved.
