We are a community of thinkers, doers and enthusiasts in responsible personal information management, and firm believers in the empowering potential of personal data control.
We host discussions around the implementation of the MyData principles in London area and promote other events of interest to the community at large.

The workshop was about discussing the promises and challenges of data portability and permissioned data sharing. We wanted to engage the experts and address some of the key legal and technical issues hindering the development of truly interoperable data ecosystem, enabling individuals to effectively put pressure on consumer-facing services and derive more benefits from the data-driven value generation process.
We started with a keynote presentation by Dr. Angela Daly, comparing and contrasting the right to data portability in the EU and the consumer data right that was recently introduced in Australian legislation.
This was followed by four presentations relating to the practical complications in making data really portable, including technical standards, unauthorized access and risks in connection with further processing.
The final two presentations gave us more ‘blue sky scenarios’ on the framework for trusted portability and sharing.
The workshop was hosted by the MyData UK hub with the support of the Open Data Institute, and open to (both current and potential) members of the MyData community.
