Wealth of data
The CIBG therefore manages a wealth of data and this data must be shared in an unambiguous, secure and accessible way with citizens, professionals and organisations in the Netherlands. And that is a responsible task. This is reflected in the CIBG ‘s strategy, where issues such as user-friendliness, the use of technology, privacy and control of data are important spearheads. The inhabitants of the Netherlands are asking for more and more openness and not only want to be able to check for themselves whether a dentist is competent, but also want to be ‘unburdened’. The Donor Register is a good example of this.
In order to be able to collect, manage and disclose this information, the CIBG uses data from various data sources. To this end, links are made to various (government) systems so that all this data can be retrieved and enriched in an efficient way. In addition, the access to citizens and organizations must of course be done in a safe manner. This often concerns privacy-sensitive information that may only end up with users who are authenticated and authorized. In other words, only when there is absolute certainty that the user is who he/she says he/she is and it has been checked whether he/she has access to that specific data.
