Cyber security and data management has come under increased scrutiny in the aftermath of several high-profile breaches. Cyberattacks and mishandling of data is not just a financial risk to investors but has broader human rights implications in terms of violation of digital privacy or manipulation of online speech.

The PRI is hosting the launch of Ranking Digital Rights’ 2018 Corporate Accountability Index, which offers a framework for evaluating whether companies are handling these risks responsibly and accountably by evaluating their commitments and disclosed policies affecting users’ privacy, security, and expression.

Rebecca MacKinnon, Director of Ranking Digital Rights, will present the findings of the latest 2018 Index. This will be followed by presentations from speakers covering issues including regulation, risk management and the cyber threat landscape.

The 2017 index, which evaluated 22 internet, mobile and telecommunications companies, found that the companies that shape the digital lives of most of the world’s internet users fail to disclose sufficient information about their governance and policies affecting privacy, security, and expression. 

Ranking Digital Rights is a non-profit research initiative housed at New America’s Open Technology Institute. We work with an international network of partners to set global standards for how companies in the information and communications technology (ICT) sector should respect freedom of expression and privacy.
