Information sharing and federated identity community of practice

We aim to get maximum value from Queensland Government data and information assets and to federate identity management practices throughout the whole of government. The group focusses on embedding a data sharing culture in the daily activities of all Queensland Government agencies and building interoperability for identity federation between agencies, departments, other jurisdictions and industry. 

Our group environment is rich in information, energy and influence. We seek to change information and identity management and sharing practices through.
