Goa Institute of Management (GIM) to organize a conclave on Ethical Data Leadership

Goa Institute of Management in its 25th year of celebration has taken the lead to start the country’s first two-year post-graduate program in Big Data Analytics. In the context of the critical issue of the data-driven economy, GIM is organizing a conclave on “Ethical data Leadership” on 22nd September in Bangalore. In the conclave, the top thought leaders will be deliberating and discussing the aspects of “Ethical Data Leadership” that is fueling the new digital economy, cross-border jurisdiction, third-party involvement, data and privacy, security, and safety parameters along with the usage of cutting-edge technology concerns that are important to leverage data [ethically] to generate the business value.

The speakers and panelists for the conclave are: Bhaskar Pramanik (Formerly, Microsoft-India Chairman), Arun V. Chearie (Director, SAS), Rahul De (Hewlett-Packard Chair Professor – IIM Bangalore), Anoop Nambiar (Chief Data Officer, Deloitte), Narasimha Murthy (Vice President, Delivery & Technology, Cartesian Consulting Pvt. Ltd) and Avik Sarkar (Head Data Analytics, NITI Ayog). Nitin Upadhyay (Chair and Head Centre for Innovation and Member Big Data Analytics, Goa Institute of Management) will moderate the panel discussion on “Ethical Data Leadership”.

It is needless to say, such practices can lead to massive damage not only to data-driven industry but also to consumers’ trust in the brand. In the past, cybersecurity threat was one of the prime risks that most of the industries were concerned with, but these days, unethical data practices have surmounted the whole risks gamut. It is critical for every player to mitigate the internal threats like cybersecurity but that is not the sufficient condition to attain the data leadership and deliver real value. The world has seen recently a backlash that top data conglomerates have faced, whether it’s during the election campaign where the social media platforms like Facebook data has been utilized unethically to manipulate the public opinion or micro-targeting the consumers by setting consumers psychological profile.
