Some of the world’s most respected business and technology leaders, from Warren Buffett and Marc Benioff to Cisco and IDC, have publicly championed the potent combination of data ethics and trust as the #1 competitive advantage for every business.

And that one-two combo can also help prevent and mitigate data breaches. According to Cognizant’s groundbreaking 2016 study The Business Value of Trust:

 “Trust has become the new battleground for digital success. To win, organizations need to master the fundamentals of data ethics. Companies that earn consumer trust will be better suited to weather the inevitable — and yes, they are inevitable — data and policy breaches.”

Our Data Ethics in the Workplace training program is a first of its kind and could be one of the most important education programs your employees ever participate in. That's because data ethics touches on everything that’s important to any business or workplace – brand, reputation, leadership, trustworthiness, sales, customer acquisition, customer loyalty, hiring and retention, workplace harmony, and perhaps most of all, breach prevention and mitigation.

For your organization, a verifiable employee data ethics training program could also provide an essential cushion in the event of that inevitable data breach or privacy breakdown.
Topics covered will include:
  • What is data ethics and why does it matter now more than ever?
  • The economic power and competitive advantage offered by data ethics.
