To my mind, data management; understanding the quality, architecture and strategy, needs to be the first consideration when working with data. So, what part does ethical thinking play in that?
Data ethics relates to good practice around how data is collected, used and shared. We need to consider the ethical implications in data handling on people and society, either directly or indirectly. Handle data with practices that reflect the values of society. Data ethics should therefore be considered at all stages of data handling from stewardship, creating analysis, products and services, and deciding what to do next.
