Palantir Technologies works with some of the world’s most important institutions to solve their most urgent problems by providing software platforms to manage and operationalize their data. Our products are deployed in spaces as diverse as cybersecurity, counterterrorism, life sciences, public health, manufacturing, finance, supply chain manage, insurance pricing, and anti-human trafficking, to name a few. In each of these domains, privacy, data protection, and general data governance issues are central challenges for our customers in a world of continuous digital transformation, where regulatory and ethical frameworks are perennially playing catch-up.
We’ll explore how complex and nuanced data privacy concepts can be translated into key technological, organizational, cultural principles and we’ll explore a few examples demonstrating how software can be designed to complement and strengthen data governance practices familiar to many DAMA practitioners.
