Global provides a framework for automating access control (in particular, privacy) policy as part of information exchange. Converting privacy policy to a form understandable to computers continues to be a significant problem and a high priority for the justice community.  The following site / link is an excellent resource for information-sharing partners in the public domain who seek technical privacy solutions and includes the following four modules:

1. Introduction - a 6-minute video setting out a high-level business case for agency executives:  “Why should I care about technical privacy?”

2. Primer -  seven 15-minute courses providing an interactive overview of the Global Privacy Policy Technical Framework:  “How does technical privacy solve our business problems?”

3. Readiness Assessment - five interactive segments blending an implementation roadmap, videotaped interviews with pilot implementers, self-assessment surveys, and recommended next steps:  “How do we evolve from today’s architecture to the Global Privacy Policy Technical Framework?”

4. Implementation Guide - a deep technical dive, including XACML exercises and a Virtual Machine for practice:  “How do we build, install, and test the components of the Global Privacy Policy Technical Framework?”

Implementing Privacy Policy in Justice Information Sharing: A Technical Framework seeks to fill this need by exploring approaches and alternatives to resolve technical and interoperability challenges in supporting privacy policy through automation. The full technical framework and an executive summary of the same are available at the included links.
