Big, open and properly protected data?

Big data keeps making the headlines. Open data is high on governments’ agenda. This CloudWATCH webinar will hear contributors to the research paper ‘’Big & Open Data in Europe: A growth engine or a missed opportunity?” debating the impact on the economic potential of various parts of Europe – North, South and East. CNIL, France’s Data Protection Authority, will then describe the main challenges of privacy from a European perspective.

The stakes are high indeed to make sure that legitimate concerns for privacy will not hamper a free flow of data and hold back the development of industry, thus depriving citizens and consumers of the benefits of the digital era.
