In the work field of the CMD employee, conscious and responsible use of digital systems and data is very important. Especially because more and more consumer data is stored and traded, information and communication systems make consumer behavior more transparent, organizations and systems are increasingly targeted by hackers. Knowledge of relevant laws and regulations is essential. Furthermore, the digital ethical accountability of both commercial organizations and (semi) government agencies.
