Monday 13 December 2021: The Courts Service published the Courts Service Data Strategy 2021 - 2024 today.
This follows on from the recently published Courts Service ICT Strategy (2021-24) and is an important building block in supporting the delivery of those initiatives as well as the wider ambitions of our Modernisation Programme.
This Data Strategy, the first of its kind for the Courts Service, sets out a clear set of actions that will bring a coherent focus to our efforts to improve the organisation’s capacity to manage and appropriately use the data it processes.
Reliance on data, whether in physical paper form or digital, has always played a central role in Courts Service operations. The following initiatives will drive a series of improvements across all areas of our business:
• Strengthening of existing data governance and data security processes
• Expanding the range of policies supporting the management of data
• Improving access and promoting the use of high quality data to support the streamlining of processes
• Increase the availability of reliable data to support enhanced data analytics capabilities internally and externally via data sharing agreements as well as open data initiatives.
The successful delivery of these data initiatives will provide a solid platform to support the realisation of the Modernisation Programme’s vision.
