Making friends with MyData “big words” and personal data management basics


What’s there behind, before, after and beyond MyData? What are we talking about when we talk about MyData? What does it mean on a conceptual, ideological level – and what does it mean in practice? What is the typical course of similar major societal shifts for businesses, governments, civil society – and of course, citizens? What historical examples are valuable for making the conscious shift towards human-centric personal data?

It is imperative that MyData community takes a step beyond the everyday bustle and discusses what do the core keywords - human-centric, consent, trust etc mean when looked at from different angles. Building open ecosystems around personal data in the free world demands we make the conscious effort of closing in and agreeing on the shared concepts. This track aims to tie in the loose ends across the domain to the colourful fabric of a more balanced and trustful, fairer and better society.
