NSW Information Commissioner champions Open Government and Open Data
Elizabeth Tydd, NSW Information Commissioner and inaugural NSW Open Data Advocate, was recently interviewed by OpenGov Asia during the NSW OpenGov leadership Forum in Sydney, as part of their Right to Know 2016 initiative.
In the interview, Ms Tydd discusses Open Data and what the Information and Privacy Commission NSW (IPC) is doing to promote a better understanding by the public of what Open Data is, what it means to them and how it can be used to improve government service delivery and decision-making. This has included the launch of an interactive infographic.

Ms Tydd also spoke about the IPC’s Right to Know Week 2016 activities – a key annual initiative driven by the IPC in NSW aimed at promoting the importance of open access information, open government and the public’s right to access information as enshrined in the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (GIPA Act).
