RIGHTSHIP founder Warwick Norman will be one of the key speakers at a conference on the misuse of data.

The Data4Good conference, to be held at the International Convention Centre, Sydney, is to showcase ways Australia’s leading organisations are using data for positive change.

The conference is to be hosted by Altis Consulting on 28 March 2019 and is to feature recognised experts in data and analytics.

Mr Norman is to discuss how he used data and analytics to change the status quo for international marine safety, as well as using data to cut carbon emissions of freighters.

Altis chief executive John Hoffman said big data and the ongoing sophistication of data and analytic tools increased the opportunities for organisations to inappropriately use them.

“When data is misused, it not only creates ethical issues with consumers, but often has wider consequences on our environment and society,” Mr Hoffman said.

“The Data4Good conference will showcase how leading Australian organisations are leveraging data to positively impact the world.”

A range of experts from industries including the environment, health, government, FMCG, not-for-profits and disability, are to be sharing their insights.

“The quality of the line-up of speakers as well as the diversity in their topics will lead to thought provoking discussions on data and analytics in ethics and positive change,” Mr Hoffman said.
