White House Reviews Big Data, Privacy Policies

White House Reviews Big Data, Privacy PoliciesIn the wake of concerns about privacy and governmental eavesdropping - and the broader impact of the Big Data revolution on privacy - the White House released last month the findings and recommendations of its Big Data and Privacy Working Group. The working group's recommendations have to potential to substantially alter the privacy and data rights environment in the oncoming Big Data era.

John Podesta, a Councilor to the President, summarized the Big Data and privacy working group's efforts in an early May post on the official White House blog.

Podesta begins by sketching the technology developments that have led to the Big Data revolution, and the positive benefits that Big Data analytics can provide to the public, using severe weather events as a timely example.

He then acknowledges the concerns and complications surrounding Big Data - the enormous amount of personal information being gathered and processed, at rates increasingly close to real time. One particular source of concern, from the White House's perspective, is the potential for Big Data to reinforce discriminatory outcomes, for example in loan approvals. In response, the report calls for passage of a Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights.

Responding more directly to criticism of large-scale cyber-snooping by the National Security Agency (NSA), the working group also called for the extension of US privacy protections to include non-US citizens. As many observers have noted, the US draws numerous advantages from its central role in the Internet - and that role depends, in part, on worldwide user confidence that this American role will not become a tool for abuses.

The working group also calls for amending and updating the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA). This legislation, which dates back to the 1980s, still provides the major framework for electronic privacy, yet it was enacted before the Internet as we know it existed.

Big Data and consumer privacy will continue to be shaped by legal and political forces as well as by technological factors. Let GRT Corporation be your guide in adopting proactive policies that will keep your organization abreast of the data and privacy environments.
