THE POWER OF ETHICS
IN THE DIGITAL AGE

Digital is rapidly becoming the norm, transforming our work and behaviour across all sectors. It is now embedded in business models, integrated with processes and practices  as organisations move towards digital-as-usual businesses. While organisations employ technology to increase productivity and efficiency, the big elephant in the room is ‘’Ethics’’. Organisations must be mindful of the risks of unethical practices, whose adverse impact can be amplified by digital connectivity.

Technology itself is neither good nor bad. It is the way it is being used that determines the ethical implications. Organisations need to be accountable to ensure responsible applications of technologies and their business interests should not take precedence over public’s interest. The CFO, the Finance Team and auditors play a crucial role in the organisation to ensure that there is proper governance over technology and that these technologies are used in a manner that does not call into question ethical practices. IT and Digital teams will need to take this into account when co-designing systems with Finance.

At ACCA’s Ethics Film Festival 2019, we will explore the “ABCD” of Ethics in a digital environment: AI, Blockchain, Cybersecurity and Data Governance; as we explore and discuss good practices and guidelines in the responsible adoption of technology and what accountants, financial and IT professionals of the future need to know.
