In his talk, entitled “Profiting from Data at the cost of privacy”, Abdelwahab explored the range of personal data that organisations have access to, and how much insight is provided by those data. For instance, analysis of phone calls can reveal the size and strength of the caller’s social network.
Abelwahab is a PhD student, who is investigating the acceptance and use of Business Intelligence systems, under the supervision of Dr Ana Canhoto and Dr Kevin Lu. His research is multi-disciplinary incorporating research in Information Systems, Business and Psychology. Prior to joining the doctoral programme in the Business School, Abelwahab worked in the telecommunications industry, and throughout his career he has been dealing with consumer data from different perspectives.
