Navigating data ethics: insights from Catriona Baldwin, Data Leader
In today's digital age, data ethics has emerged as a critical imperative for Chief Data Officers (CDOs) and data-driven organisations. As consumers become increasingly aware of data protection and privacy issues, building trust and fostering ethical practices are essential for maintaining competitive advantage and cultivating consumer loyalty. At the forefront of this pivotal conversation is Catriona Baldwin, Data Leader.
With over two decades of experience in blue-chip organisations, Catriona Baldwin brings a wealth of expertise in Data Governance, Data Quality and Data Ethics to the table. Since joining Sky in August 2020, Catriona has spearheaded initiatives to integrate data ethics into the fabric of organisational culture and operations.
In her forthcoming industry workshop at the Richmond CDO Forum in September 2024, Catriona Baldwin will delve into the intricacies of data ethics and its profound implications for modern businesses. The workshop, aptly titled “Data Ethics – a CDO Imperative”, promises to be an illuminating exploration of the challenges and opportunities inherent in promoting ethical data practices.
One of the central themes Catriona will address is the evolving landscape of data ethics and its relevance to contemporary business models. As data becomes increasingly ubiquitous, organisations must grapple with defining what data ethics means in the context of their operations. Catriona will guide participants in evaluating where they stand on the data ethics journey and articulating a clear framework for ethical decision-making.
