Just Because You Can…

Speaker Anne Buff on Data Security

It's exciting times in the world of data. Executives are not only realizing data is a valuable corporate asset, they are also starting to pay attention to the potential and possibilities data presents. The value in the use of data is getting the limelight it has long since deserved. But be careful. With this new excitement for data comes new challenges.

Advancements in technology provide powerful capabilities for companies to know more about and provide more for their customers than ever before. But, just because they can doesn’t mean they should. With the increased use of data throughout the business, the risks of unethical data use, intentional and unintentional, are growing exponentially. Companies must position themselves as trusted guardians of customer data and apply ethical standards around data driven decisions to ensure integrity and protect their public image.

In this session, Anne will talk about the organizational risks surrounding data use, help you develop guidelines for data ethics, and define the responsibilities for business professionals to mitigate such risks.
