Introduction


This project set out with the aim of helping London’s public sector organisations quickly and easily share data with each other when it is appropriate to do so, in a way that is legal, ethical and secure.

Data collaboration has long been known to be hard for a number of reasons. Many are linked to the fact that each borough has a different approach and set of tools for completing the Information Governance (IG) process.

LOTI has therefore:

LOTI was pleased to confirm the launch of Dapian, a new digital tool for creating Data Privacy Impact Assessments. LOTI supported the development of the tool with Looking Local, CC2i and local authorities around the UK. The ICO were on the project group involved in the development of the platform, which reduces the time taken to create a DPIA by ~63%, saving around £1,200 per DPIA in saved staff time.

Workshop 2

Facilitated by Ed Garcez, Fozlu Miah and Sudip Trivedi from London Borough of Camden and the LOTI team, the workshop had three objectives:
1) fully engage DPOs and IG Leads in LOTI’s work on responsible data sharing, 2)
identify specific actions to improve the IG process for pan-London data sharing projects, and 3) present the Information Share Gateway as a tool available for London’s public sector.

The key question we wanted to explore was how LOTI could effectively reduce the time and complexity involved in the IG aspects of data sharing initiatives. See summary and slides.

Project Planner

Sets out our rationale and methodology for developing a project seeking to enable public sector organisations in London to be able to quickly and easily share data with each other when it is appropriate to do so, in a way that is legal, ethical and secure. This contributes towards LOTI’s Data Collaboration and Sharing and Reusing workstreams.
