Data-gathering technology is more sophisticated than ever, as are the ethical standards for using this data. This second edition shows how to navigate this complex environment. Data Ethics provides a practical framework for the implementation of ethical principles into information management systems. It shows how to assess the types of ethical dilemmas organizations might face as they become more data-driven. This fully updated edition includes guidance on sustainability and environmental management and on how ethical frameworks can be standardized across cultures that have conflicting values. There is also discussion of data colonialism, the challenge of ethical trade-offs with ad-tech and analytics such as Covid-19 tracking systems and case studies on Smart Cities and Demings Principles. As the pace of developments in data-processing technology continues to increase, it is vital to capitalize on the opportunities this affords while ensuring that ethical standards and ideals are not compromised. Written by internationally regarded experts in the field, Data Ethics is the essential guide for students and practitioners to optimizing ethical data standards in organizations.

Industry Reviews
"Ethics play an increasingly important role when considering how to collect and use personal data. This updated edition of Data Ethics clearly explains how to take ethics seriously and make it an integral part of business information management and governance. The combination of sound and up to date legal theories with practical tips and case studies makes it a useful handbook for anyone working with data on a regular basis." * Paul Breitbarth, Senior Visiting Fellow, European Centre on Privacy and Cybersecurity, Maastricht University *
"In a world where AI is creating a growing wave of often dubious information, O Brien and O'Keefe's book should be mandatory reading for everybody in IT, media, regulatory bodies and beyond. This new edition of Data Ethics focuses on emerging topics of vital importance in a world where ethical decisions by IT may literally be, in the extreme, matters of life and death." * Dr Barry Devlin, Founder, 9 Sight Consulting and author of Business unIntelligence *
"I can't think of a subject more relevant than data ethics. Given that we live in a data-dependent world, the most important question is not "Can I do something with data?" but "Should I do something with data?". These questions should be considered by teens learning to code, businesspeople gathering and exploiting customer data, scientists developing and releasing Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications, and anyone creating and using data. Daragh and Katherine provide an excellent groundwork for addressing these questions and give us the tools to think and act with our data in a responsible way. Read their book, share it and apply it!" * Danette McGilvray, President and Principal, Granite Falls Consulting, Inc. and author of Executing Data Quality Projects *
"Reading Data Ethics gave me goosebumps. Impeccably researched, it is the definitive work on the topic. Simultaneously confronting and enlightening, it challenged my own ethical framework and validated the principles I hold dear in my practice as a Data Governance Executive. The foreword by John Ladley is delightful and sets the scene perfectly for what is to follow. I look forward to our DAMA community here in Australia, and internationally, having the opportunity to share their experiences after reading this outstanding book on data ethics." * Andrew Andrews, Data Governance Manager, ANZ Banking Group and Vice President of Marketing, DAMA International *
