Digital ethics enable organisations to utilize digital technologies in a responsible manner. In a quickly transforming world, digital ethics are essential to maintain the trust of users, consumers, and citizens.
Being compliant is not enough for digital transformations and innovative uses of technologies. Organisations are increasingly, and publicly, held accountable for their use of data and digital technology. This leads to costly reputational damage.
Considerati is the partner for organisations that want to use digital technologies in a trustworthy manner. We call this: Responsible Tech.
Organisations are increasingly confronted with undefined or vague expectations of what ethical and socially acceptable uses of digital technologies are. Compliance with existing legislations, often ill-fitted to digital technologies, is hard. And when it is not, the shifting attitudes of clients, stakeholders, and the media, make it hard to determine acceptable use of digital technologies.
With 15 years of experience advising clients on this topic, Considerati helps organisations to find their way out of this maze of regulations, societal expectations, and stakeholder interests.
We help organisations leveraging digital ethics on an organisational level and for concrete development and deployments initiative. On each level the starting point is a broad assessment including risks and challenges, stakeholders, and applicable regulations:
The DNA of your organisation should also inform your vision and principles related to responsible innovation with data and digital technologies. This moral compass, together with an assessment of compliance and reputational risks, informs the necessary elements for a digital ethics framework tailored to your organisation.
User, customers, or citizens interact with your technology through products and services. This makes it essential to identify and mitigate risks during the development of a new application. This enables your teams to design positive-sum solutions for your organisation and your stakeholders.
Digital ethics are a new way of thinking about digital impact and trust for many organisations. Before your teams can apply this to their work, they need to be trained to use this new perspective. We organise several programs for various audiences:
The next dates of these trainings will be announced soon.
