For both the public and private sector, information is
often an organisation's most valuable asset; protection, release and
exploitation of that information can bring significant challenges.
The CIR recognises that the term 'information rights' spans a wide range of live issues including information sharing, freedom of information (FOI), privacy, cyberlaw, intellectual property, e-disclosure and Government open data.
