Ensuring Data Protection and Data Safety

  • Online

The creation of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) legislation in the EU means that every European organization has to account for the safe and proper handling of citizen’s personal data or risk a fine of up to 4% on their gross annual revenue. This legislation has global implications as every major organization has data of EU citizens or that flows through EU servers. This legislation provides a massive opportunity to increase ethical considerations in the creation of AI/S and technology in general where organizations can go beyond compliance and reframe innovation to provably align their products and services with end user values.

What you will learn:

  • Recall the EU data protection framework
  • Describe the importance of data protection
  • Explain why individuals need access to their data to evolve AI innovation
  • Explain why an AI agent is needed for data protection
