beta Discussing the Digital Government Declaration

[...] * Provide guidance to public agencies in adopting a security by design approach and risk management plans to ensure privacy and security of data stored. Technological advancements such as blockchain can allow public administrations to manage data within a secure infrastructure and to automatically share them with other agencies and departments. The final goal of ensuring privacy and security of data stored will be to allow individuals and organisations to gain direct control over all the information the government keeps about them.
