Companies handle a growing amount of sensitive data in the digital realm. We believe that companies that do not handle data and cybersecurity responsibly may face reputational or regulatory risks. On the other hand, effective cybersecurity products are in high demand, and we have been investing in the companies that make these solutions for years. In this webinar, Alexandra Reeve Givens, President and CEO of the Center for Democracy and Technology and member of KKR’s Sustainability Expert Advisory Council (SEAC), offers a thought-provoking perspective on the stakes for data responsibility in the context of issues such as privacy, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. Then, Alison Fenton-Willock, Director on our Sustainable Investing team, hosts a panel discussion with Stephen Shanley, Partner and Head of KKR’s Tech Growth business in Europe; David Stern, KKR Chief Information Security Officer; and Paul Harragan, Global Cybersecurity lead for KKR Capstone; about data security as both a business risk and an investment opportunity.
