CRITICAL READ WHAT: “Accelerating Data Inno- vation: A Legislative Agenda for Congress” by the Center for Data Innovation. WHY: As the Obama adminis- tration winds down, Congress has an opportunity to enshrine elements of its open-data policy into law. In addition to codifying open data, the authors of the report have 11 recommenda- tions for Congress. Some are controversial, including a plan to require that all regulatory data submitted to the Securi- ties and Exchange Commission be in machine-readable XBRL format and a proposal to create a universal patient identifier for electronic health records. VERBATIM: “Congress should pass legislation that explicitly defines publish- ing open data as the offi- cial responsibility of federal agencies. To fully secure the benefits of open data for the public and businesses, such legislation should codify the data stewardship and publishing requirement put forth by the Obama adminis- tration’s Open Government Directive and related execu- tive actions; establish high standards for the accuracy and timeliness of govern- ment data; store this data in non-proprietary formats to make it as accessible as pos- sible; and apply these rules to all government contrac- tors and quasi-governmental agencies.” FULL REPORT: is.gd/FCW_opendata Trending comments were received for GSA’s Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions draft RFP 1,600 Trust, privacy and security were at the center of a panel discussion at the U.S. Digital Service’s DigitalGov Citizen Ser- vices Summit in May. “We can build all the beautiful digi- tal services that we want, but if people don’t trust them, they’re not going to use them,” said Dan Morgan, the Transpor- tation Department’s chief data officer. Commercial credentials and a new attitude toward privacy could be the keys to future success. For instance, the use of “sensitive information” could enable govern- ment to provide new levels of service, said Sean Brooks, privacy engineer at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. But people’s concerns about privacy necessitate finding a care- ful balance. Keeping track of numerous logins is taxing, too, and Jennifer Kerber, director of the General Services Administration’s Connect.gov, lamented the need to cre- ate unique usernames and passwords for each government service online. “What if I had the opportunity to bring a credential I trust to the govern- ment?” she asked. And that’s exactly what she and her GSA colleagues are creating with Con- nect.gov, which allows users to connect with the government by using creden- tials they already have and trust, such as those they’ve established with Google or PayPal. Agencies don’t track which credential is provided or the digital activity that is so often used for marketing purposes, Kerber said. They simply know that the person’s identity has been verified by a trusted third party, which simplifies the process for users and saves the govern- ment money. Brooks said privacy, security, and the ways agencies and people talk about them need to be overhauled. “If I could eliminate the word ‘creepy’ from all future conversations about pri- vacy, I would,” he said. When it comes to credentials and dig- ital services, “privacy, security, interop- erability and user friendliness” should be the guiding principles, Brooks said, adding that they should be built into digital services from the ground up. He and Kerber noted that the “5,000- word privacy statement that makes the lawyers happy” is not a good model for the future of digital services. Organiza- tions must shoulder responsibility for privacy and security rather than shunt- ing it onto users. — Zach Noble Privacy, security and one login to rule them all? 8 June 15, 2015 FCW.COM Join the conversation FCW uses Twitter to break news, field questions and ask our own.
