“Customer data is being captured and leveraged by enterprises to inform strategy and provide costs savings – but without appropriate guardrails, data can also be misused, causing inequity and harm,” notes Bridget Quinn Choi, Director at Booz Allen Hamilton. “Industry is at a critical juncture when it comes to client data, navigating data usage, understanding regulations, and addressing what can be the unintended consequences of using data unethically.”

Event Description

If data is the new oil, digital ethics is the new environmental protection. This session drills into the emerging capabilities of data manipulation, including the evolution of data architecture and taxonomy and real-time data analytics for reporting, prediction, and anomaly-detection. It discusses effective best practices for data architecture and taxonomy and data reconciliation (across on-prem and cloud hosting). And it raises the issue of digital ethics: how to protect customers and employees from data abuse, given the emergence of unprecedented capabilities for modeling, analysis, and prediction.
