One person’s ethics are not the same as another’s’.  So how can your business use Data Ethically?  In this course we look at examining how to determine what ethical approaches you may wish to employ, where ethics come into play, and how to turn your Data Protection approach from “the cost of legal compliance” to the “benefits of good data governance”.  We cover how to get it right first time, and examine case studies for those who didn’t!
