Predictive analytics can enhance a variety of finance processes, as well as offer insights into business problems and areas of possibility -- these tools and technologies can be used to predict revenue, improve supply chains, analyze loss, and detect fraud -- among other things. Although the potential for predictive analytics is growing, there can be serious pitfalls that can lead to privacy missteps, misuse of data, and discrimination, leading to the boundaries for the ethical use of collected data as a question up for debate. So what steps can corporations take to become more transparent about the use of predictive analytics in data collection?

In this session, GCs from corporations utilizing these tools will discuss how predictive analytics affects data privacy, and where the boundaries for ethical use lie with regards to consumer data.

This program was recorded as part of ALM & Corporate Counsel's Annual General Counsel Conference on September 26th, 2019.
