Big data and data protection

Monday July 28th, 2014

This paper is intended to give an overview of the issues as we see them and contribute to the debate on big data and privacy. This is an area in which the capabilities of the technology and the range of potential applications are evolving rapidly and there is ongoing discussion of the implications of big data. Our aim is to ensure that the different privacy risks of big data are considered along with the benefits of big data – to organisations, to individuals and to society as a whole. It is our belief that the emerging benefits of big data will be sustained by upholding key data protection principles and safeguards. The benefits cannot simply be traded with privacy rights.
