2:05pm:  Keynote: The Data Breach vs The Ethics Breach: Preparing for Both

In today’s age of 72-hour breach reporting and the 24/7 news cycle, data breaches seem like a daily headline. While consumers may no longer be shocked by their data being lost or stolen, the way in which an incident occurs can impact the level of reputational damage following an breach. Stakeholders are understanding the difference between a data breach that may occur from a security flaw and an “ethics breach,” where a company was careless with personal information or sought to capitalize on the improper use of data. In this session, we’ll review case studies from recent breaches and analyze which situations qualify as an “ethics breach.” We’ll also handout an incident and breach toolkit, including tips to avoid the catastrophe of an ethics breach violation in your company.

2:20pm:  Conversation: 2021’s Artificial Intelligence Challenges​

Bias is one of the more wider discussed challenges with the heavy use of AI in our businesses and society. However, computing abilities, scarcity of data, bad data, and trust are amongst the many other hurdles we are set to face as we rely on AI and automation in growing intensity. We set out the tumultuous path you might find yourself on with AI, and help you prepare for all scenarios.​

2:50pm:  Closing Panel:  The Future of Online Content Moderation​

Every business, nation, charity, leader, institution and individual shares content online; whether creating new content, or sharing that which already exists. This content creation can be positively impactful, but can also lead to gross misinformation about issues as large as global healthcare & safety. What role does every player have in eradicating harmful consequences of online content use? To what extent can – and should – it be moderated…and by whom?​
