Welcome to the Responsible Data Forum wiki! We will use this space to collaborate on resources that help practitioners implement responsible data practices.
What's responsible data? The responsible data community has developed a working definition. We have defined it as:
The duty to ensure people's right to consent, privacy, security, and ownership around information processes of collection, analysis, storage, presentation and reuse of data, while respecting the values of transparency and openness.
