IAF Discussion on Big Data Ethical Assessment | 22 July | New York City

IAF will host a meeting entitled “Big Data Ethical Assessment: A System for Assuring Big Data Processes are Legal, Fair and Just.”  The event will take place on 22 July 2015, 8:30 AM, at Dentons LLP, 1221 Avenue of the Americas, New York.  The 90-minute session is designed for privacy lawyers, chief privacy officers, chief data officers, and others interested in big data governance.

Big data governance is becoming a huge privacy challenge for organizations that are treating data as a corporate asset.  What are the risks?  How do we assure the organization understands those risks?  How do organizations defend big data processes to privacy enforcement agencies both in and outside the United States?

It begins with a firm understanding of what you are doing and how that matches up against an assessment of what is legal, fair, and just.

IAF, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose charitable purpose is research and education regarding accountability-based information governance, has been working on a framework for big data ethical assessment for the past year.  This session will be the first presentation of this exciting project.

The IAF Big Data Ethics Initiative is built on Marty Abrams’s eight years of looking at big data in the light of 25 years of experience in privacy and data protection.  Marty will present with Lynn Goldstein, chief data officer at NYU’s CUSP and formerly chief privacy officer at JPMorgan Chase.

What will you learn?

  • How a unified ethical frame creates both flexibility as well as controls;
  • A customizable methodology for assessing whether a project is legal, fair and just;
  • How enforcement agencies will oversee the big data market.
