Recording Here

Graphic for a CDT event, entitled "Effectively and Safely Sharing Government Data With the Public." On Thursday, December 15, 2022 from 2:30–3:30 pm EST.

Join CDT and Georgetown’s Massive Data Institute for a conversation on how government data can be publicly shared in a responsible manner.

Date: Thu, December 15, 2022
2:30 PM – 3:30 PM EST

Government-held data could add value to policy analyses and service delivery if it were made available to wider communities. Recognizing that the public release of government data carries certain risks, particularly with respect to privacy and equity, there are growing calls to improve secure and effective data access.

This webinar discusses recommendations for opening up government data, establishing a National Secure Data Service, and implementing privacy preserving technologies, drawing on reports published by the Center for Democracy & Technology (CDT), the Advisory Committee on Data for Evidence Building (ACDEB), and Georgetown University’s Massive Data Institute (MDI).

Hannah Quay-de la Vallee of CDT and and Stefaan Verhulst of GovLab, as well as Amy O’Hara and Stephanie Straus of MDI, will facilitate a conversation exploring these issues. We hope to see you there.
