Data Ethics Training
  • fr-FR
  • English (UK)

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 ethics and trust as the #1 competitive advantage for every business.

And that one-two combo can also help prevent and mitigate data breaches.  


The New Employee Security Awareness

We believe that all organizations should be using data ethics training for all employees, and not just data scientists, as a way to manage security and privacy risks.

    It's a simple idea. If all employees are encouraged to see all data through an ethical lens, to always see the humans data represents, to take greater personal responsibility for data in their care, that could significantly reduce security and privacy mistakes. And because ethical companies are forgiven faster, a good data ethics program could also reduce the cost and impact of a breach.

    And there's an even bigger RoT (Return on Trust) 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 provide an essential cushion in the event of that inevitable data breach or privacy breakdown. It's like banking forgiveness for future failures.

Fans of Data Ethics

"In an era of data- and innovation-powered business growth, the idea that "everyone is in sales" should be complemented by the notion that "everyone is in ethics."
"Data ethics should be required training for all employees, regardless of role, because of the immense potential it offers for managing security and privacy risks and beyond."
Malcolm Harkins, Chief Security and Trust Officer for Cymatic and former Chief Security and Privacy Officer for Intel.
“As FTC cracks down, data ethics is now a strategic business weapon.” 
Tech Crunch

“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.”

"A singular focus on security is not enough. While data ethics is a new area for most businesses, it must be a key consideration as organizations evaluate starting or continuing their digital transformation journeys."
MIT Sloan

“Organizations should begin taking steps now to reduce their exposure to digital risk by integrating a wide array of data ethics practices throughout their data supply chains.”
