What better way to amplify everything that data teams across Essex are achieving than by bringing them together through the Be Part Of The Equation (BPOTE) network.

Our last event was held on 27th July 2022, where our Information Governance expert Tom MacGregor provided valuable IG guidance for analysts, exploring what personal information and data protection is, what considerations and risks there may be when using personal information, and how we can document our work. The event can be watched here. 

In June, James Maddison from the Open Data Institute inspired us with some great examples of what’s possible for our organisations and communities by investing in open data. He also shared some great learning to enable us all to start or focus on what impact we could gain from opening our data. The Open Data team at ECC also gave us a demonstration of the Open Data Portal. This event can be watched here. 

This month our Data Ethics Committee ran a Data Ethics Masterclass, taking us through what data ethics is, why it's important and how it relates to our organisations and roles. Look out for the video of this event, coming soon!
