Data breaches and ethical breaches: mere compliance versus doing the right thing

  • Ethics in our view is doing the right thing even when no one is watching and even when it costs you more money,” explains Chris Paterson
  • Breaches could be based on carelessness in handling the data, bending the ‘legitimate interest’ requirement of using the data and the reasonable expectation of what data is being used for as well as judgements based on the ‘greater good’ versus the rights of the individual.
