The challenge of data sharing in the new normal

Tuesday 29 September, 9.00am - 10.00am 

The ability to share data more easily can provide new ways of solving problems, give businesses and consumers more choice, and be used for a greater purpose. But with this growing, more seamless and open approach to data sharing also comes greater responsibility and the need to build more trust.

Our first speaker in session two was Miles Cheetham, a key figure in the UK’s open banking journey. Miles discussed how the open banking ecosystem in the UK has evolved, and how it was a driver for innovation and improving customer experiences. He also provided insight into how data was being used and the opportunities moving forward, including use cases from the Open Up 2020 challenge, a national campaign to raise awareness of open banking solutions for UK consumers.

Glen Hildreth from the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) then talked about their discussion document on New Zealand’s having a customer data right (CDR). The document was open for feedback at the time of Glen's presentation.
