Reputational Risk and Data
The revelation that the Facebook data of up to 87 million people may have been unknowingly shared with Cambridge Analytica has not only resulted in a huge blow to the reputation of the social network but also raised serious wider questions about the approach of corporations to data protection and information sharing.

If so, is this increased awareness translating into better practice in how willing they are to share their data? How have the recent revelations changed the international data policy debate? And how should companies, both large and small, manage reputational risk in the aftermath of either a data breach or following news that they have been making personal data available to third parties?
