Open Government, a key aspect of the international agenda for increasing transparency and accountability of public sector, is based on the principle that citizens have a right to know what their governments are doing and to benefit from government information.
Trustworthy information is at the heart of transparency, accountability, anti-corruption, citizens’ rights and economic development. Trustworthy records are at the heart of trustworthy information. Protecting information integrity is increasingly difficult and increasingly important in the digital environment. Information integrity does not happen automatically.
It is achieved through well-defined control frameworks.
