MCIT logo and text "Virtual Risk Management Workshop" on a dark blue field with lighter blue intermittent stripesWhat is government data? Have there been changes to the law since the last time you learned about the MGDPA? Are there still elements of the law you do not understand? This webinar provides basic information that public employees need to understand about government data and it’s availability to the public. Attendees will learn valuable information to allow them to win at trivia! (See Risk Management Workshop: The Devil Is in the Details of the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act for more about trivia.)
