MP: Public and Private Organizations Should Work Together
DATA PROTECTION—UKDecember 4, 2012
Senior Member of Parliament Crispin Blunt says private-sector organizations can help public agencies strike a balance between reaping the benefits of sharing data across agencies and protecting personal information, reports Publicservice.co.uk. Blunt recently chaired a Parliament event where public- and private-sector groups came together to discuss best practices in data-sharing transparency. "This is a complex issue, and we need to work with the private sector to ensure this is progressed in a cost-efficient way with the appropriate safeguards to strike the right balance of protecting the privacy of the individual and providing more cost-effective services to the general public," Blunt said.
