Australian Data Strategy
The Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet has released the Australian Data Strategy. This Strategy sets out how the Government will enhance effective, safe and secure data use over the period to 2025. This data strategy will support the public service to be as well positioned as possible to respond to the changes we see around us. The Strategy focuses on three key themes:
- Maximising the value of data – describes why data is important, its economic and social value, its use in responding to priority issues, and the benefit that can be gained through using and safely sharing data. Data can create new value when shared between different levels of government, and the private and non-government sectors.
- Trust and protection – describes the settings that can be adopted in the private and public sectors to keep data safe and secure, and the frameworks available to protect Australians’ data and ensure its ethical use through the entire data lifecycle.
- Enabling data use – sets out approaches and requirements to leverage the value of data, such as capabilities, legislation, management and integration of data, and engaging internationally.
