Ove Skåra (born 9 March 1961) is a Norwegian civil servant.

Skåra is the current director of information in the Norwegian Data Inspectorate. When long-time director Georg Apenes stepped down in April 2010, Skåra was acting director. He made his mark while in office; among others the Data Inspectorate, together with other organizations, boycotted a sitdown arranged by the Norwegian Ministry of Justice and the Police where the Data Retention Directive was to be debated.[1] Skåra reverted to being information director when Bjørn Erik Thon was named as permanent director in late May 2010.[2] Skåra was not among those who applied for the position.[3]

Skåra resides in Bærum.
