Learn about the risks, enormous costs of breaches and how data ethics can lead to responsible innovation
If you have ever tried to talk about GDPR or Data Ethics, you have probably found some resistance. Typically people are not interested. They say the issues raised get in the way of doing “real” business. On the other hand, artificial intelligence is a more sexy subject. So why aren’t we “doing” more AI? I’ve found people run away from privacy and protection with ill-thought-through excuses or misunderstandings presented as reasons for why we should be doing something else.
A cursory look through business journals or the IT press should reveal we are heading towards a road crash. Take a look at the GDPR fines handed out to Google, Facebook and many other blue-chip companies. If you then factor in class action consequences that could reach, in one example, $1Billion, then you see the extent of the problem. Oversights and data breaches hand lawyers reasons to extract huge sums from corporates. Surely, if we operated more ethically we could make all these problems go away?
Cybercrime is on the rise, and we prefer to focus on getting to the AI promised land faster. What if we could have it all? What if we could reduce our risks to hackers and derive real value from our data? Well, I am not going to promise you the earth but will suggest that a detour to take in the Data Protection and Privacy landscape will provide you will a new global view for responsible innovation.
This course will explore the Wild Wild West of Data to show you why we must care. There are consequences for not taking the right kinds of actions. We will then map out the global standards and legal frameworks to end our journey on data ethics. Finally, we will make the case that you will achieve better AI results if you have first crafted a better data culture.
We’ve tried to understand who would benefit from this course. If you fit one of the following categories, then the course is for you.
