Conflicting priorities in Open Data Practices. Is the Right to Information threatening the Right to Privacy?

This session intends to gather privacy experts, open data practitioners and FOI advocates to explore the privacy concerns that have emerged across the global community of open data practice. Big data technologies bring powerful utility to open data practice, but they also bring new privacy and security implications for citizens. These concerns should not be left unaddressed. To ensure the sustainability of Open Government endeavours, we need to find ways to integrate the right to privacy into our policies and practices. At the same time, data protection is often cited as the reason for reluctance towards genuine Open Government approaches. Conversely, a careful process to define standards for privacy protections in public sector data management and frameworks that help us balance the Right to Information and the Right to Privacy could add strong support to the broader Open Government agenda.

We would like to stimulate a clarifying and instructive debate with experts from the Open Government and the Privacy field. We will address the relationship between Right to Information and Privacy, speak about experiences with privacy assessments on the governmental level, and present global perspectives on privacy, such as data privacy-conscious Germany, to identify concerns and possible solutions.
