Description

COMMITMENT #1: FOLLOW MY DATA
Commitment Start and End Date: implementation from the first quarter of 2019
Lead implementing agency/actor Ministry of the Presidency and of Administrative Modernisation/ Administrative Modernization Agency
Commitment description
What is the public problem that the commitment will address?
Citizens are increasingly aware of their lack of control over the use of their personal data by both public and private entities, which contributes to hinder confidence in the use of digital services in general.
What is the commitment? Develop an app that allows citizens and businesses to monitor access to their personal and business data.
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem? The mobile application, which will integrate secure authentication via Digital Mobile Key, will allow the data provider (the citizen) to manage requests for access authorization by public or private bodies, including creating, suspending and deleting access authorizations (for example, citizen may allow the "Entity X" to access "ID, Tax Number, Name, employer" up to date "Y", for the purpose of "Opening a Bank Account").
In addition to the app, citizens will also be able to use the Citizen Portal to consult the accesses made by public authorities that are legally entitled to access their data without prior authorization.
Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values? The measure fits on the axes “Transparency” and “Use of ICT and Digital Inclusion”.
