Digital Ethics: Where Digital Transformation Meets Sustainability

Most organizations today are busy with digital transformation and investing in data-driven initiatives to stay relevant for their customers. In these endeavours, cybersecurity, privacy and digital ethics implications of these initiatives are often an afterthought or seen as gaps to be patched after a cyber-attack or data breach disaster. More often than not, treating these topics as secondary costs organizations more, financially and reputationally, than investing in them early on.

This session discusses how to be proactive about cybersecurity, privacy and ethics to create digital resilience in the organization, and advantages of seeing these concepts as an opportunity rather burden.

Desired outcomes:

- Understand the cyber security threats that organizations are exposed to, and be able to communicate them effectively to the rest of the leadership team or the board.
- Recognize the new consumer trends in privacy and what the GDPR means for businesses.
- Learn about how to incorporate privacy into the design of products and processes, how privacy by design constitutes the core of GDPR.
- How to think about ethical dilemmas in case of a cyber incident, or during any digital initiative, and have strategies for responding.

Target audience:

For executives and leaders who have the responsibility of digital & data-driven initiatives; for marketing and business development professionals interested in using customer data for value creation.

Note that a complementary event covering digital ethics, responsibility, and sustainability will be offered by Professor Michael Wade on May 7, 2021.
