Spotlight on Data: The Ethics of Analytics with Bill Franks

Video description

The more data we collect, the more concerned we are (or should be) about what data is appropriate and how—or if—it should be analyzed. There are many ethical, privacy, and legal issues to consider, and no clear standards exist as to what’s fair and what’s foul. This means that in order to implement the right policies, organizations must devise their own principles and tolerance for risk.

In this Spotlight on Data, learn about the range of ethical, privacy, and legal issues that surround analytics today. Bill Franks will frame the big questions every successful business must consider while outlining some of the trade-offs and ambiguities they need to address to answer them.
