Some of our friends at CSIRO’s Data61 team have shared a new project that seeks consumer input on data privacy in relation to finance and energy. If you have views on data privacy issues that you’d like to share, I’ve included some more information about the project below along with a link to the screening survey.
The Data Standards Body is looking for people to participate in research on data sharing. This research will run over the next 6 months and explore needs, behaviours, perceptions, and expectations relating to the sharing of financial and energy data.
This research will run until June 2020 and explore your needs, behaviours, perceptions, and expectations relating to the sharing of financial and energy data. Sessions will be between 20 and 90 minutes long, and compensation will be given at varying levels depending on the activity.
About the project
The purpose of the research is to develop common standards for consumers to access data held about them by businesses, and – if they choose to – share this data with trusted, accredited third parties. This program is referred to as the Consumer Data Right (CDR), which is being implemented by the Australian Government.
The research will be carried out by the Data Standards body jointly supported by the Australian
Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC). The Data Standards Body draws on the expertise of CSIRO’s Data61 team. The findings from this research will inform data sharing standards and will shape future decisions and activities related to the Consumer Data Right. The ultimate goal of this research is to help organisations provide people with simple, informed, and trustworthy data sharing experiences.
How to take part
If you are interested in taking part in this research, please complete a screening survey here
(surveymonkey.com/r/CDR2020). This survey will be used to identify suitable participants for this research project. After completing this survey, you will be considered for addition to a panel of participants who may be asked to participate in future research.
All survey responses will be kept confidential. Participants must be based in Australia.
