Many corporate managers believe that responding transparently and substantively to the challenges of environmental, human rights, and other stakeholders fulfills their corporate social responsibility. The reality is much more nuanced, especially for organizations and firms involved in information and communication technology and services. In a world where the accelerating evolution of Big Data, Data Analytics, personal electronic devices, global information networks, Artificial Intelligence and other ICT products and services is not just challenging current paradigms, but obliterating them, corporate social responsibility becomes a much more crucial, and far more complex, challenge.
