Perceptions of data ownership, rights to access information and data governance are evolving rapidly. People are demanding greater transparency, accountability and participation in decision making (including about access to information and data) – not only from government but also from companies, NGOs and the media. Openness is no longer optional. It must be embedded in organisational culture. This session builds on last year’s event “Government Information Accessibility”, which discussed the issues and challenges for agencies releasing information, and for citizens searching or requesting information. Speakers will share some of the drivers, benefits and practices of openness, including lessons from across Australia and the global open government movement.

Damian Martina has spent most of his adult life working in the cloud technology sector. With experience encompassing large multinational organisations and local start ups, Damian now spearheads the Brolly sales and marketing team. When asked ‘Why Brolly?”; Damian’s answer is that Brolly is an unique solution that addresses not only the need to archive social media, but more specifically, the need to archive social media in Australia. “Social media is becoming more prevalent not only in the social aspects of our life, but ever more so in our working life. It has become the go-to place to get up-to-date, immediate information. It is what radio was in the 30’s and TV was in the 60’s, combined and multiplied by millions of creators of content. That’s exciting in anyone’s language.”
