Data is now recognized as a business critical asset. Organizations are increasingly seeking to leverage their “Big Data” assets to generate actionable insights that will drive better performance, enhance efficiency and create new forms of value. Organizations globally are beginning to consider how to respectfully treat data in a manner that fosters innovation but at the same time mitigates the array of privacy, legal and ethical risks associated with previously unimaginable secondary uses of data.
