Shaping the Future of Data Policy

Co-designing, piloting and scaling forward-looking, interoperable, and trustworthy data policies to propel innovation and accelerate responsible use of data.

Data fuels the Fourth Industrial Revolution. More data is being generated than ever before, with the global volume of data predicted to double between 2018 and 2022, and double again between 2022 and 2025. Although an unprecedented amount of data flows across borders and devices, the regulatory environment for data localization remains fractured. The more than 120 data privacy laws currently in place globally have created more uncertainty than ever before. Much of the data needed to tackle the world’s most pressing challenges lies siloed in both public and private sources, with an array of regulatory, commercial and social risks preventing the sharing of data, even for social good. 

Our Platform works with partners from all sectors, regions and industries to develop agile and innovative approaches to accelerate the responsible use of data and empower stakeholders across the entire data ecosystem.
