Leading Practice Data Principles

Data Governance Australia is committed to setting industry standards and benchmarks for the responsible and ethical collection, use and management of data in Australia.

Together with industry experts, we have developed Leading Practice Data Principles as part of our on-going effort to promulgate leading industry standards, promote a culture of best practice, and to drive innovation by increasing consumer confidence and trust in the data practices of organisations.

DGA’s Leading Practice Data Principles are dynamic as they continually need to be responsive to evolving consumer sentiments, new regulatory environments, and technological developments.  They are provided to our members and the wider community as thought provokers to be adopted, adapted or neither so as to suit each business as appropriate.

The 8 core Leading Practice Data Principles are:

  • No-harm rule
  • Honesty & transparency
  • Fairness
  • Choice
  • Accuracy and access
  • Accountability
  • Stewardship
  • Security

The complete Leading Practice Data Principles will be made available shortly.
