  • Embrace a data mindset, seeing IT as a driver rather than a cost center and integrating data collection to all sides of the business
  • Embed ethical aspects in AI design by safeguarding transparency, avoiding bias and ensuring accuracy and appropriateness in an individual context
  • Establish strong processes to ensure data confidence, and reinforce trust through third-party assurance
