Implementing a Data and Analytics Ethical Framework

As data ethics continues to garner increased attention in the (re)insurance industry, it is critical for organizations to have a strategic and measured approach to data utilization. 

In this video, RGA’s Jordan Durlester, Vice President of Data Strategy, Global Data Analytics, explores three fundamental steps to implementing an ethical framework for data and analytics: 

  • Establishing an ethical oversight board 

  • Building an ethical framework that establishes the organization’s fundamental guiding principles 

  • Developing structures required to ensure that the ethical framework is successfully implemented throughout the organization 

In 2021, RGA launched its Data and Analytics Ethical Framework, a set of enterprise-wide guiding principles for data and analytics utilization. The principles are revisited, amended, and updated as the industry, regulatory, and ethical landscape dictates.

The (re)insurance industry plays an important role in curbing the potential for harm in data utilization, and RGA proudly supports industry players in efforts to promote ethical data practices.
