James Felton Keith is currently President of The Data Union. Affectionately known as JFK, he is an award winning engineer and serial-entrepreneur that defined data as a natural resource in his book Personal Data. He is also editor of the Anthem Press Ethics of Personal Data Collection series, and host of the Inclusionism radio show.

JFK has incubated the data industry via his founding of the International Personal Data Trade Association and Personal Data Week conferences. He and his institutions have either written, consulted on, or influenced all of the global cyber policy over the past 10 years. A serial-entrepreneur, he has founded multiple companies across the InsurTech FinTech and AdTech sectors. Most notably: Cyberfense, Accrue.com, and Slay TV. His expertise is in the ethnography of technology, or the study of the culture of tech. Over the past 20 years between 4 continents he has been obsessing about economic inclusion, and how to get equity in the hands of the people who have increasingly less, while the world becomes more productive from their input.

JFK was the 1st Black representative of the LGBT community to run for US Federal Office in New York’s 13th Congressional District. He says “it’s necessary to have the mind of a CEO and the heart of a Social Worker to solve real people problems”. James has been appointed to the cabinet of Elected Officials, taken over for and advised CEOs, Academics, Governments, and Non-profiteers.
