Data Portability White Paper
The UK needs fundamental structural reform if it is to realise the full personal, social and economic potential of personal data in a digital economy. Data portability opens a door to achieving this structural change. Done well, it can open up rich, exciting opportunities for value creation, innovation and growth. But done badly, the harms it creates could outweigh the benefits. Policy makers and regulators have the opportunity to do data portability well using services and infrastructure that already exists. They can and should seize this opportunity.
