Who is Afraid of GDPR?

Invited Talk | Day 2 | 8:30 am | 40 Minute Duration | Grand Gallery E/F

Rumors of Big Data’s death have been greatly exaggerated – or have they? I plan to touch on what the General Data Protection Regulation is, what the philosophy behind it is (empowering individuals vs companies), who it applies to (you?), what it means and what you may have to do about it, and how it’s different and similar to US privacy laws (HIPAA is the closest thing we have) – all to ignite a discussion on the impact of GDPR on the world of Big Data. Friend or foe? You be the judge!
