Data ethics & sustainability as a top priority in 2022
Data governance and privacy raise a lot of ethical issues. Data ethics has become an even more pressing issue for companies in recent years. Mainly due to data sprawl, data ethics is a swiftly emerging field. While the rewards of utilizing data are apparent, so are the risks of abusing or losing the data. Failure to follow data ethically can have detrimental effects and lead to a loss of trust in people or organizations.
While many data professionals follow their ethical approach, there’s no single rule defining how ethics behave in the data territory. Much remains to be learned, discussed and improved.
4 KEY QUESTIONS:
- Ethical data management = GDPR compliant data management?
