Today’s legal departments are standing at the cusp of a game-changing shift driven by the ability of their organizations to collect and leverage huge volumes of data. Big Data offers unprecedented opportunities for commerce, innovation and social engineering. But it also presents new challenges for in-house counsel when it comes to privacy, security and a blurring between what is helpful to consumers and customers, and what crosses the line into intrusive or off-putting behavior.
This article, published in ACC Docket and co-authored by Ronké Ekwensi of Duff & Phelps’ Information Governance practice, addresses the legal, privacy and security concerns of Big Data, how Big Data intersects with privacy and security to impact the legal department and the business; how to proactively fulfill the potential of this new information; and anticipate where the barriers might lie.
