Big Data and CSR: Are You Ready or Not? 

Companies today are racing to exploit the growing availability of "BIG DATA." Big data helps firms create better products and services for customers and greatly improves decision making; however, big data can  create risks and complex ethical challenges. 

Is your organization prepared to address the ethical implications of big data?

How does big data fit into your Corporate Social Responsibility strategy?

The University of Dallas Sustainable Business Network has invited thought leaders from a variety of industries to share their insights into what big data means in their industries. These experts will discuss their  experiences and lessons learned for avoiding the pitfalls of big data, including privacy, confidentiality, and transparency challenges.

Join us for this engaging, interactive session! 

You will leave better prepared to take on the social, legal, and ethical issues that big data presents to your organization!
