Data Ethics

Definition updated on November 2023

What is data ethics?

The ethical and moral ramifications of gathering, sharing, and using data, particularly individually identifiable information, are covered by the field of data ethics. It is especially concerned with the potential adverse effects that data projects might have on particular people, groups, or larger societies. It strives to guarantee that information is used fairly and without discrimination. Understanding the ethical issues surrounding the use of the data and putting appropriate practices in place to show that these issues are being addressed are necessary when adopting a data ethics strategy from the outset of any data project. Data ethics calls for a responsible, all-encompassing strategy that integrates technology, morality, and effective information governance practices.
