As part of their digital transformation efforts, organizations need to act responsibly and promote ethical use of data and technology. The power of digital technologies to enable new sources of revenue are significant. As a response to societal concerns as well as to create long-term value through ethical leadership, DARWIN’S CIRCLE will discuss on the 3rd of November at Palais Ferstel this topic concerning digital ethics and their responsibility when it comes to an efficient handling with data as the digitalization has a huge impact on work processes in modern companies. Further, we want to introduce you to the first two speakers of our digital conference.

Digital technologies develop in a new era and driving transformative changes in every industry, as organizations adopt these technologies to redefine how they create, deliver, and capture value and trust. Identifying, understanding, and addressing new risks associated with digital transformation will help businesses derive more value from their efforts in the future towards society.

How can we establish trust and data security in our society in the long term?

Different questions should be asked such as how can organizations respond to big changes in data security? Where are risky decisions and is there a plan to deal with unintended consequences? In the following, we would like to briefly show you the core challenges that society and modern companies have to manage in the near future.

  • Integrate ethics and data security in the organization’s strategy by instituting an ethics board or appointing a chief ethics officer that works closely with business units and oversees transformation efforts to guide use of technologies in beneficial ways.
  • Build a culture of responsibility towards society by training employees on industry-leading practices, such as integrating principles of fairness, ethics, and safety through the product or service life cycle, and encouraging desirable behaviors through strong support from the top and supporting performance management systems.
  • Evaluate proposed and secure applications of emerging technologies in products and services to consider possible ethical, social, and cultural implications.
  • Collaborate with trustable industry stakeholders to build ethical frameworks for the use of emerging technologies, in the absence of established standards and norms, to be viewed as the leader in the space.
