Balancing Information Access & Privacy

About the Forum

Municipal governments manage a broad range of highly sensitive information and records using myriad complex tools. Managing the storage, security and access to these records, while ensuring adherence to the needs of the public, law enforcement, and relevant privacy legislation, is a highly politically charged responsibility. How do you balance, information, access, privacy and security in the digital age? How do municipal professionals manage the often competing priorities of the legislative environment, with the need for good governance?

The annual AMCTO Information Access & Privacy Forum provides a platform for leading experts to share their insights on current and emerging issues and trends in access to information, and privacy matters affecting the municipal sector from a multi-stakeholder perspective.
