Hi everyone,

Join us for the next session of the Data Privacy Cluster- which is all about Data Ethics!

At our first Data Privacy Cluster meeting, we surveyed attendees and asked what topics they wanted to hear more about. The two topics were Data Ethics and GDPR management platforms.

This session provides a practical introduction to establishing 'Data Ethics' within an organisation:

  • We'll start by exploring what 'ethics' means to us, and ways to manage friction between ethical conduct and business needs
  • Then, we'll take a look at some of the many ways in which data can be dangerous; and how those dangers can be controlled, before moving on to the sticky questions of deciding what you CAN, MAY and SHOULD do with people's data
  • Finally, we'll discuss some case studies of unethical data practices to look at what went wrong
The session includes a 45-minute presentation on the topic from our speaker Rowenna Fielding; who describes herself as a nerd whose obsessive tendencies have served her well in building a career; first as an information security specialist then an advisor on data protection.

More about Rowenna:
  • Over the 10+ years since switching fields, Rowenna has been helping to bring data protection law to life in commercial and voluntary sector organisations, from in-house and more recently; as a consultant
  • In 2020, Rowenna established her own company, Miss IG Geek Ltd; providing advice, support, training and guidance on data protection and eprivacy
  • If she won the Lottery, Rowenna would probably carry on working in data protection anyway, because its intersection of technology, social order and human rights is just too interesting to miss out on, even if it is a bit of an uphill struggle most of the time
Finally, the session will conclude with 30 minutes of QnA.

The session is aimed towards:
  • Data Protection professionals: Data Protection Officers and consultants
  • IT Managers
  • Legal professionals
  • Procurement teams
  • Those seeking to use personal data to drive growth and profitability
The next session in June will focus on GDPR management systems. We will have a panel of specialists who will share their insights and take questions from attendees. These specialists have helped clients select and deploy platforms in small, medium and large organisations across the world.
