In June 2014 the Cambridge Centre for Risk Studies brought together leaders and decision makers from businesses, governments, intergovernmental organisations, academia and NGOs to explore salient topics in risk management. The summit was held at the University of Cambridge Judge Business School, followed by a conference dinner at Emmanuel College, Cambridge.
The theme in 2014 explored implications of “Big Data” and its opportunities and risks to businesses. The democratisation of information access has provided enormous opportunities for individuals and organisations while creating growing debate on its consequential use. Big data holds potential for research, innovation and productivity, while posing complex questions of ownership, value, aggregation, and the broader benefits to society.
The Summit also served as a platform for the launch of the UK India Business Council’s Next Generation Network (East of England).
