5 Ways Chief Data Officers Can Balance
Big Data Initiatives with User Consent

The CDO Summit is the premier event for digital & data leaders
Wednesday, 24 February, 2016 
Sydney, Australia

When it comes to user data, just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should.

As more and more organizations are learning, legal compliance is not a substitute for consumer trust.

And even honest initiatives to leverage data can backfire if not handled correctly, harming both brand and reputation:

  • 89% of internet users actively avoid doing business with companies they feel do not protect their data privacy.
  • 58% are worried about businesses sharing their personal information.
And the numbers tracked by this 2014 TRUSTe U.S. consumer data privacy study are only rising.

That’s why the CDO Club assembled a panel of data and privacy experts to address this issue at the 2nd annual
U.K CDO Summit, presented by Accenture Strategy, on Wednesday, October 7th, 2015 at 30 Euston Square, London.

Panelists included:
  • Peter Lacy (moderator): Global Managing Director, Strategy, Sustainability Services at Accenture
  • Bridget Treacy: Partner at Hunton & Williams
  • Fedelma Good: Director, Information Policy & Strategy at Barclays
  • Tony Henderson: Playready Lead Europe at Microsoft
  • Russell Marsh: Former Global Chief Data Officer at IPG Mediabrands
  • Neil Chapman: SVP & Managing Director, International at ForgeRock

These experts revealed 5 key best practices every Chief Digital or Data Officer needs to know to leverage user data and improve their services without compromising trust.
