Perhaps there is someone else at that agency you can approach who understands the risks of releasing data  (or how to identify & quantify risks) and the rights of the public to use it?

Subject: [@OKau] Qn's from Government re GovHack

Hi All,

One of the GovHack/Code for Australia Fellows has been in communication with a state employee from the Department of Health and Human Services (Tobacco Unit) indirectly as a result of her work within the council.

They seem to be interested in participating in GovHack but have asked her the following questions.
I am not really the right person to answer these questions. I don't want to ask "do we have canned responses" but I presume these are regular questions that people can answer more eloquently than I. Pia?

Is it possible you could identify any risks and how they are mitigated?

Is there a risk the data could be misused in anyway or potentially criticise the Department or government?

Is there a risk the submissions
 such as applications or websites could be used to criticise the 
Department or current government.

Are there any privacy risks?
