One of the key aims of the UK's Transformational Government strategy is to create a “joined-up” government where communications within and between public organisations is improved by the use of information technology. Data sharing is a key enabler of “joined-up” government but the implementation of the strategy presents a series of risks. The purpose of this paper is to articulate and assess the nature of those risks in relation to violations of existing laws using the National Pupil Database (NPD) in England as a case study.
