Overview: Knowing the Risks and Benefits of digital data to empower you, your team and the organization. The future of digital leadership is circular; it’s about more than just efficiency and getting things done; it’s all linked in a cycle from development to production to consumption. Being a leader of tomorrow means understanding not only technology advancement like AI, ML, RAP but also the associated risks, privacy concerns, ethics, legal and regulatory environment, ESG and their impact on the circular economy. 

Session will cover awareness of areas related to disruptive technologies, technological regulations, and ESG, along with risk management, ethics, compliance, privacy, and cybersecurity.
