BIG DATA & CYBERLAW- A BASIC PRIMER
Big data is a term that we are increasingly hearing these days. In fact, big data has already started impacting the mainstream operations of our daily lives, without us even realising the same. Companies and legal entities are increasingly relying upon big data, not just for the purposes of making intelligent decisions but also for the purposes of predicting consumer behaviour and evolving future appropriate strategies to further business interests. In this context, while big data is continuing to grow, there are a variety of legal, policy and regulatory issues concerning big data which have already emerged. These issues are critical as they are intrinsically linked with the kind of data that is collected on the big data sets and big databases. These issues have been addressed to some extent in various national legislations. Further, various international best practices have been evolved and adopted by the big data stakeholders.
This eBook aims to look at the existing important jurisprudential issues impacting big data in today’s times. It looks at important legalities and policy nuances impacting big data in the current times. It also points out various important legal considerations that need to be kept in mind by all big data operators when they engage, handle or deal with big data in the course of their big data analytics and connected relevant business operations.
This eBook seeks to encapsulate the existing big data jurisprudence in a common man’s language. Big data jurisprudence is an integral part of a broader umbrella of Cyberlaw jurisprudence and will continue to develop as big data continues to grow by quantum leaps with each passing day.
This eBook would be of value for every stakeholder in the big data ecosystem who is interested in big data operations and who wants to understand the legal nuances and complexities impacting big data operations as well as the emerging jurisprudence pertaining to big data and big data analytics.
