High profile data breaches have put CISOs under the spotlight and emphasised the limitations of what conventional cyber-security can achieve. Alongside technology to prevent unauthorised access, you also need to be tracking where your data is ending up, as DQM GRC’s Peter Galdies explained to DataIQ.
The Financial Conduct Authority’s TechSprint brought together teams from all over the world to focus on how privacy enhancing technologies (PETs) can help financial institutions to share data. Simon McDougall of the ICO, who helped to judge the entries, feeds back on what he learned.
A new stimulus fund of £150,000 is available to eligible projects that will increase access to data and drive innovation in the engineering sector. The fund has been announced alongside the publication of a manifesto and report aimed at getting companies and organisations in the engineering sector to publish, use and share data.

The current methods of governing artificial intelligence and autonomous systems are not sufficient to protect our connected devices from having their vulnerabilities exploited by hackers. Dr Bertie Müller points out some of the flaws in the systems that some of us use on a daily basis, and what might be a better way to mitigate them.
Trust in data not only increases your level of compliance, it can enhance the accuracy of the decisions you make. But only if you really believe the data you are presented with. Caroline Worboys of Outra explains why confidence scores are the key tool for achieving this.
The Co-op data team took home the Best Data Ethics and Privacy Programme at the DataIQ Awards. Claire Hadfield of the Co-op explains how they engendered a culture of trust and what the win means for her and her team.
I took an unauthorised photo in a foreign country and it led me to think about how attitudes to privacy differ across nations, professions, time and location. As data subjects and internet users, we should all be able to explicitly state what our red lines are when it comes to our data and our privacy.
