Smart Cities Need Smart Privacy Protections: FPF seeks public comments on proposed Open Data Risk Assessment for the City of Seattle
The Future of Privacy Forum (FPF) requests feedback from the public on the proposed City of Seattle Open Data Risk Assessment. In 2016, the City of Seattle declared in its Open Data Policy that the city’s data would be “open by preference,” except when doing so may affect individual privacy. To ensure its Open Data program effectively protects individuals, Seattle committed to performing an annual risk assessment and tasked FPF with creating and deploying an initial privacy risk assessment methodology for open data.
