Plenary 6: Fact or Fiction: Governance of information and Big Tech
In a time when companies are looking for clearer rules on how to ensure the free flow of digital information across borders, the issue of how to govern data and run digital economies fairly has never been more essential. Companies from all countries and geographies are looking to balance the need to retain public trust with the desire to tap into the profits of big data. This discussion will focus on how standards of global governance around data and information are currently being set and share opinions on whether current strategies are up to the challenge.
