This week, the realm of data privacy has been rife with new announcements. From OkCupid’s user experiments, to Twitter’s latest transparency reports about government intervention, to the US and EU gridlock over who has jurisdiction over Microsoft’s European data centre- it would appear data security is a hotter topic than ever.
There have also been a spate of announcements about how governments and judicial bodies are putting in place revolutionary proposals to regulate big data. The European Court are currently working on a raft of regulatory proposals which should come into place later this year; the White House and FTC have both released papers calling for data transparency; part of San Francisco’s six-year open data strategic plan is the creation of a “process for accessing your individual data.”
We want to know; what’s your biggest concern about the way data is currently stored, transferred and used? Which form big data regulation will be the most valuable?
