Adopting a security-minded approach to open data

Presented by

Alex Luck

About this talk

Open data engrains a 'presumption to publish' unless there are clear, specific reasons, such as privacy or national security, not to do so. It is therefore important to understand what data could be used by those with hostile or malicious intent to adversely affect an individuals or communities, assets or the services which those assets exist to deliver, to cause commercial or economic harm or to jeopardise national security. Adopting a security-minded approach to the sharing of data does not in any way to undermine the principles of open data or to reduce the benefits that may be gained from greater data sharing, but helps to ensure sensitive information is protected in a way that is appropriate and proportionate to the risk. This presentation explores the work ongoing in this space, the challenges and vulnerabilities being addressed and the development of the tools that support the implementation of security-minded approach as business as usual.
