Webinar: Cultivating Trust in a Data-Sharing Environment

May 9, 2019 10:00 - 11:30am EST

Please join Future State for the next installment in our webinar series on personal data governance for individual empowerment.

In our inaugural webinar earlier this year, we explored emerging models of user-centric data sharing, which featured architects of several efforts to develop systems and tools to “unlock” data and give people the ability to access and manage the data they generate online. If you missed it live, you can listen to that webinar here.

Building upon that conversation, our next webinar will examine how to cultivate a trusted ecosystem such that people are able to assess how their data is being used and represented when shared -- and what to do about it when they identify problems. The webinar will include three presentations that look at institutions, technologies, and practices that can help build trust for individuals. These presentations, followed by a group discussion, will seek to address key questions including but not limited to:

  1. What are characteristics of emerging models for trusted data brokers? And what does each model mean for how individuals manage their data and interact with the broader data sharing ecosystem?

  2. In order for people to feel confident in data-sharing tools, how should risks related to consumer protection, privacy and cyber security be managed? How do redressal systems work when individuals identify problems in the usage of their data?

  3. From a consumer behaviour perspective, what trends are we seeing in terms of providing consent to share personal data? To what extent can we see correlations between providing consent and trust in how personal data is being used?

The discussion will feed into a consultation document on the potential implications of data sharing for individual welfare and society more broadly. The consultation document will be circulated widely as a means to inform stakeholders and solicit a broad range of perspectives. Ultimately the intent of the document is to inform ongoing discussions on how to strength data governance approaches.
