Having found a lag behind the digitalization pace that our life necessitates, the government is actively rebuilding and drastically changing the philosophy of public administration, Computerworld writes. At the same time, the top priority is data processing for which the National Data Management System is being created, said Ivan Fost, Head of the Department for Methodological Support of Data Processing at the Analytical Center.

According to Mr. Fost, the National Data Management System is a conductor that understands where are the data stored, how they function and what uniform rules are required to benefit everyone.

Only the system concept has been approved so far, but we plan to develop a range of documents, including the law on the National Data Management System, told the expert. It is assumed that the result will include uniform requirements for state information sources, uniform rules for information exchange and flexible access to data, as well as opportunities to create new popular services for the end user, including analytical data for managerial decision-making.

Meanwhile, one of the key issues for the system developers is the differentiation of access to personal data and state secret data. Thus, the access of business entities to primary personal data is denied, however, aggregated reports can be available without restrictions.
