BIG DATA: Professor Omer Tene Explains the Privacy Risks Behind the Buzz

Professor Omer Tene, privacy expert in law and technology, sat down with TAP to discuss the risks big data poses to privacy and the challenges to existing privacy rules. Additionally, he proposes enabling individuals to have useful access to their data.

In this video, Professor Tene points out that the ability to collect data everywhere –from online interactions and devices, RFID chips, location-based technologies, to name a few— has driven data to a new level. Big data has tremendous benefits for the economy and society at large; however, it also magnifies risks to privacy. Professor Tene stresses that we should try to balance these big rewards against the risks in order to manage privacy.
