Data Ethics: Balancing Insight and Compliance

Activity: Academic talk or presentation typesInvited talk


Invited talk given at the GDPR Scotland conference 2018.

Dr Pagliari encouraged participants to think beyond regulatory compliance and consider the ethical challenges of data protection. She stressed the need for organisations to shift from a culture focused on penalty-avoidance to one that prioritises societal responsibilities. She also argued that, for data protection to be achievable and sustainable, change needs to come from the grassroots.

Themes of the session included:
A concerted shift to ethics as a core priority of data analytics and organisational process
Key ethical considerations: data ownership, value models, privacy, security, design
How do we design organisations and systems around ethical frameworks
Translating ethical principles into tangible guidelines and process
Establishing rules which achieve real objectives
