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.

Our panel will discuss the risks associated with the disclosure and misuse of personal data. Are individuals becoming more conscious of the value and potential abuse of their data? 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?

This event is open to corporate members only and will be followed by a reception. This event will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
