The demand for self-service analytics is placing unprecedented pressure on organizations to provide its workers easy access to the organization’s data assets. Simultaneously, rapidly-expanding data privacy regulations are requiring limitations and safeguards be put in place or an organization could face significant legal and reputational repercussions. This year’s DAMA Day will focus on these two topics and highlight how firms are attempting to strike the right balance between them.
Key Note: Aaron Weller
First Comes Ethics, then Comes Democratization
While allowing broad access to data sounds like a great opportunity - if you consider how valuable that data can be, there is clear risk in democratizing access without appropriate risk management in place, but where traditional risk management doesn't have the answers, what can you do?
Building a culture of responsible data usage with a strong ethical basis within your organization will allow you to both reap the benefits of data democratization and respect personal information in accordance with your organizational goals and those of other stakeholders. Think beyond compliance and about how to develop and deliver a culture that makes data work for you.
