Angela Radcliffe, R&D Practice Lead, Life Science, Capgemini Invent

As we continue forward in the age of digital information, the risks to personal privacy and security will only continue to increase.

While digital innovation is accelerating progress across the spectrum, it also provides new opportunities for the misuse, malicious actions using, mistakes involving, and inappropriate release of information. With more actions being automatically being taken through the use of artificial intelligence and big data analytics, ensuring proper protocols for the anonymization and thoughtful handling of data is paramount.

If we are to innovate, we must take great care to protect the individual along the way.

Join us as we discuss these, and related, information security and privacy risks, legal obligations, and recommendations for addressing these issues.

Topics Include:

  • How consideration of data ownership impacts data subjects’ privacy

  • Why you can’t use de-identified or anonymized personal data indiscriminately without putting data subjects’ privacy at risk

  • Security controls that must be in place that are often overlooked

  • And, don’t forget about those many, and increasing, legal requirements for handling data considered to be personal data

Bias in Data Sets and Analytics

Interesting Resources:

Ensuring the proper curation and integrity of data from the earliest stages of collection is absolutely essential. For the quality of downstream results to be trusted, bias must be minimized and accounted for through thoughtful quality control methodologies. As well, thoughtful considerations need to be made as to what types of data should be used in an analytics process, as to not create preemptive bias for a certain result. Join us as we explore how to best manage these critical concerns.

Often, incompatibility between data sets leads to challenges in the analysis and useful interpretation of information. Add in the complexity of HIPAA, and it’s an all-hands-on-deck moment for data scientists managing ever growing amounts of data.

To address data interoperability and improved analytics, we bring together experts and thought leaders from industry, academia, and government for cross-silo collaboration.
