Publishing Open Data

Open data is the concept that some data should be freely available for everyone to use and republish. For companies who publish open data it is important to ensure the security and accuracy of the data before publication. Taking the necessary steps and investing in the proper security protections before the data is ever published will help to reduce current and future data security risks and costly remediation.

  • Identify a potential data offering

  • Assess the risk of publishing

  • Assess the technical feasibility of publishing

  • Establish a technical support plan for the data

  • Generate the data set for original systems

  • When generating metadata:

  • Publishing the data offering and metadata

  • Reviewing and refreshing data publications.

  • Measure the performance and report on status.
