Ethics of Big Data is about finding alignment between an organization's core values and their day-to-day actions in a way that balances risk and innovation. As Big Data brings business operations and practices deeper and more fully into individual lives, it is creating a forcing function that raises ethical questions about our values around concepts like identity, privacy, ownership, and reputation. How we understand those values and align them with our actions when innovating products and services using Big Data technologies benefits from a framework that provides a common vocabulary and encourages explicit discussion.
The material will address the intersection of ethics and Big Data; what it is and what it isn't. Specifically, how to approach and generate dialog about an abstract subject with direct, real-world implications. A general framework for talking about ethics in the context of Big Data will be introduced.
1. Direct relevance to your data handling practices

3. Ethical Decision Points
4. Value Personas as a tool for encouraging discussion and generating agreement and alignment between values and actions
