Legal and regulatory questions are common among groups working to share cross-sector data. This brief, Navigating Legal Parameters for Cross-Sector Data Collaboration, provides examples of how organizations addressed legal and regulatory concerns about sharing data. Approaches include creating easy-to-use tools to determine who has access to which data, creating adaptable yet secure data sharing agreements, and engaging the leadership and legal teams of the organizations involved.
