Topic: Human Data Rights – The Motivation for Data Ethics

There are many motivations for Data Ethics but how do you ensure you are designing governance processes that provide both support innovation but allow a safe place for ethical challenge? What responsibilities should corporations have in this largely lightly regulated space? How do we move the dial on thinking about what makes responsible data use? Hear from NAB on how they’ve been designing their Data Ethics Framework to look at the tough issues.
