    Event description

    The Chief Executives’ Club at Queen’s invites you to the Lecture ‘Using Data for Good’ with Jude McCorry, Chief Executive of the Cyber and Fraud Centre, on Tuesday 28 May in Riddel Hall.

    Our speaker Jude McCorry has over twenty years of experience in the Technology sector with her career journey beginning with Dell computers in Ireland. Jude joined the Cyber and Fraud Centre in April 2020 from The Data Lab where she was Deputy CEO working with industry and academia to maximise the value of data for Scotland.

    She is one of the founders of the UNICEF Data Hub for Children, which finds innovative ways of using Data to improve the lives of children in Scotland and around the world - she also sits on the board of the Edinburgh Data Driven Innovation Hub, and an Advisor to the School of Informatics at Edinburgh University. She is currently setting up a charitable organisation working collaboratively with financial institutions and Policing to look at how we tackle the increasing level of fraud through action and data.

    Jude is very passionate about data/tech for good and also inspiring the next generation into Cyber and technology – particularly looking at female participation.

    Information on the Lecture

    During the keynote Jude will speak about how you can bring a sense of purpose into your working life, finding opportunities to do “good things” with technology. Even if our role is to make money and profit, we should be finding ways to use our skills and technology for good.

    Jude will demonstrate how she did this with her role at the Data Lab, using Data for good, and building the Data Collaboratives for Children with Unicef. Doing Good Things with Data continues in her role as CEO of the Cyber and Fraud Centre, bringing this theme throughout her role and building it into her team’s purpose of “doing good things with Cyber and Fraud.

    Jude wants us all to look at what we want to be remembered for, and more importantly, during and after our careers have ended will we look back and think “I have done something meaningful with a large proportion of my life”.
