It is not only possible to balance the interests of businesses and individuals but essential for the future wellbeing of business, individuals and wider society that we do so.
The use of technology and new ways of doing business offer the potential not only to solve problems but also to create them. The speed of change means that business, policymakers and not-for-profit bodies need to anticipate and address challenges together.
There are other organisations striving to close these gaps, and Datum Future aims to amplify their work, but this is the first global forum bringing together businesses to engage, learn and take action.
Datum Future is dedicated to a future in which people are confident that their data creates value for themselves and society.
The data economy will flourish only if it is based on transparency, responsibility, individual agency and societal benefit.
