Overview

As modern society evolves to accommodate new state and federal legal requirements for data sharing, access, and privacy protections, a renewed focus on how to responsibly and ethically manage data has emerged. Despite increased calls for recognizing data as a strategic asset across government, there are considerable challenges for achieving this reality.

During the first virtual symposium hosted by the Data Foundation, a Washington, D.C.-based think tank focused on data management and use, participants learned and engaged in dialogue about developing approaches for implementing new legal requirements and satisfying expectations across the American public for applying data governance models to meaningfully use data for producing insights that benefit society.
