A Code for an Ethical Data Economy

The Swiss Alliance for Data-Intensive Services is launching a “Code of Ethics for Data-based Value Creation”. The code is intended to help companies and institutions to promote the confidence of consumers and politicians in the value-added use of data. The Digital Society Initiative is involved in the Code of Ethics.

The creation of value from data is becoming increasingly important for economic development in Switzerland and worldwide. But data protection law alone cannot ensure that companies handle data responsibly. The Swiss Alliance for Data-Intensive Services is therefore launching a “Code of Ethics for Data-based Value Creation”.

The Code of Ethics is available on the Alliance's website at https://data-service-alliance.ch/innovation/codex.
