Privacy, Ethics, and Trust: The Role of Information Governance

  • 55 Featherston Street Wellington (map)

The world is seeing exponential growth in the technology and information space, and with this growth comes new and unexpected challenges. Privacy and the right to understand when, why, and how our personal data is being used has been pushed front-of-mind for most people, particularly in the wake of events like the Cambridge Analytica scandal and the Marriott International breach.

Join us for this session where Susan Bennett, Principal of Sibenco Legal & Advisory and Co-founder & Director of Information Governance ANZ, will look at what ‘trust’ means in the digital age, why it matters, and why organisations should be using an ethical based approach to data analytics collection involving personal information. Being a trusted provider and being transparent about the use of personal data can be a competitive advantage, as well as a moral one, and this presentation will give you the tools to understand best practice when it comes to making an ethical assessment for your organisation.
