Data, Ethics and Trust podcast

Data, Ethics and Trust is our podcast that explores the complex moral and ethical issues surrounding our contemporary connected society: misinformation, disinformation, data manipulation, exploitation, and privacy. Our emphasis is on research and learning, with a global view for local impact.

Data, Ethics and Trust interviews global, government and  community leaders as well as researchers and activists to help us understand what shapes us and our communities.

Data, Ethics and Trust is hosted by Dr Charles Kriel, a seasoned field veteran working in conflict zones and fragile states around the planet. Charles is our Research Fellow for Data, Ethics and Trust. He is a Specialist Advisor to the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) Select Committee, as well as an Associate Fellow at King’s College Strategic Communications Centre. He speaks globally, and regularly consults NATO, the House of Commons, Radio Netherlands Training Centre, UNESCO and organisations around the world. Data, Ethics and Trust is your go-to global update.

Your Data, Your Rights

An understanding of how personal data is used and shared is a key part of building people’s digital skills. Our Your Data, Your Rights project explores people’s attitudes towards their personal data and what knowledge and skills they need to make informed, safe decisions about how their data is managed.

We co-designed a survey with the Corsham community and subject matter experts in partnership with MyLife Digital as part of the Discovery stage for this programme. The survey asked people what they thought about their personal data and how it is used by the organisations that they share it with, as well as what they knew about their data rights and how to use them. 

Overall, our research showed that most people lack essential knowledge about their personal data, and how organisations collect and use it. However, they care a lot about this, are very interested in their data rights and want more information. You can read more about what we learned on our Your Data, Your Rights results page.

Our results aligned very closely with research conducted at a national level. Our blog, ‘Personal data: how much do people know or care?’ reports on these trends in more detail.
