Government agencies are under heavy scrutiny due to public trust. To build a culture and community around open source information it requires cross team collaboration; ensuring we’re in compliance with security and privacy laws, creating sufficient documentation, and forestall reputational risks. As a data driven agency, we let the data present the facts leading to our open approach. I’ll present some best practices on operationalizing standards like handling sensitive data, providing clear documentation, and creating awareness.
• Presenting clear data
• Using laws and regulations to your advantage
• Working with communities
• Creating standards
