Data is at the heart of one.network. And we rely on our customers — and some organisations (like a few remaining local authorities) who aren’t our customers — to provide that.
But data doesn’t exist in a vacuum. It represents tangible events such as timings of traffic interventions, details of utility companies’ operations, and street works schedules.
Some of that information is sensitive, and it’s our responsibility is to protect it. This is why the Department for Transport is changing the way organisations like one.network can share it.
We’re working collaboratively with the DfT, and with our customers, to understand what this means for one.network users. But the likelihood is that we’ll no longer be able to display the same amount of information to everybody.
Here are some of the changes we’re expecting to see.
- Some information will have to be removed for users who aren’t logged in*
- Some information will be reserved for users who belong to a one.network subscribing organisation
- Some information we can only share with users whose organisations are part of Street Manager
*It’s free to register and log into one.network. Just click here.
These changes affect the whole industry, not just one.network, but we’re here to support our users and customers in making this transition seamless. They’ll be implemented over the coming weeks, and we’ll be sharing more information here and via email as we respond to the adjustments.
