Join Abby Clobridge (Founder, FireOak Strategies) and Kait Maloney (Catholic Relief Services) for a panel discussion about organizational considerations for data transparency and information security at the ICT4D Conference.
As data transparency is becoming a bigger trend within the international development and humanitarian aid community, organizations are grappling with the practical implications of what this means.
Examples of the questions we’ll discuss:
- How do we balance information security concerns – specifically around confidentiality and privacy – with open data and a push for transparency?
- How do we ensure that data is appropriately protected, secured, and safeguarded until it is intentionally published or made publicly accessible?
- How does open data impact project and program data and administrative and operational data? What must remain confidential?
- What technical controls should be in place to protect information and data before it is intentionally made public?
- How do we get buy-in and support from throughout the organization for transparency initiatives?
- What are the biggest challenges with data transparency?
Join us to discuss organizational considerations such as these with respect to data transparency and information security.
The panel will be moderated by Forrest Wilhoit, Senior Program Manager at NetHope.
