From DPO to Data Ethics Officer: Don’t Fall Behind!

Cooley partner Patrick Van Eecke, co-chair of the firm’s global cyber/data/privacy practice, presented at this session. Patrick and his co-presenters covered how organizations need to broaden their approach when thinking about how best to manage data and compliance beyond existing privacy laws – and focus on what currently is described as “data ethics.”

The session covered:

  • The role of the data protection officer in a new data ethics compliance environment.
  • Lessons learned from big data companies that have implemented data ethics programs.
  • Ways to transform the DPO function into a DEO, including how to bring the topic of data ethics to the board.
