Data Policy & Trust
Unlocking the value of data
Data is now at the centre of the global economy. In every vertical, from manufacturing to agriculture, companies rely on it to secure a competitive edge, manage costs, and enhance customer satisfaction.
Policy-makers and regulators have taken note of how data has increased in value by implementing new laws and regulations to control how it is used and monetised. This has led to a proliferation of data protection laws across the world, many designed without full realisation of the impact they will have on innovation.
Our analysis and advocacy limits regulatory risk and prepares businesses for the implementation of new rules.
In many countries the desire to improve data protection is focused on giving citizens control over their own data. Cybersecurity policy pushes in the opposite direction, with governments demanding more information – not only about data breaches, but also using cybersecurity as a rationale for increased state surveillance. Access Partnership helps business to navigate these competing policy demands to find the right business and ethical outcome.
The rise of AI poses questions to digital ministries and to those in the corporate world. This means businesses must grapple with issues around bias and algorithmic transparency alongside a reshaping of what work looks like. By working in partnership with businesses and administrations to consider these issues, we can help to enable fair outcomes to the benefit of all.
We can help you by:
- Analysing how data-related policies and regulations can impact your business
- Developing advocacy campaigns responsive to the unique policy landscape in target countries
