Summary

Big Data: A Business and Legal Guide supplies a clear understanding of the interrelationships between Big Data, the new business insights it reveals, and the laws, regulations, and contracting practices that impact the use of the insights and the data. Providing business executives and lawyers (in-house and in private practice) with an accessible primer on Big Data and its business implications, this book will enable readers to quickly grasp the key issues and effectively implement the right solutions to collecting, licensing, handling, and using Big Data.

The book brings together subject matter experts who examine a different area of law in each chapter and explain how these laws can affect the way your business or organization can use Big Data. These experts also supply recommendations as to the steps your organization can take to maximize Big Data opportunities without increasing risk and liability to your organization.

  • Provides a new way of thinking about Big Data that will help readers address emerging issues
  • Supplies real-world advice and practical ways to handle the issues
  • Uses examples pulled from the news and cases to illustrate points
  • Includes a non-technical Big Data primer that discusses the characteristics of Big Data and distinguishes it from traditional database models

Taking a cross-disciplinary approach, the book will help executives, managers, and counsel better understand the interrelationships between Big Data, decisions based on Big Data, and the laws, regulations, and contracting practices that impact its use. After reading this book, you will be able to think more broadly about the best way to harness Big Data in your business and establish procedures to ensure that legal considerations are part of the decision.
