As companies begin to move to a “big data” world, they face the problem of acquiring additional data about customers, and the associated problems of privacy, liability, security, and ethical considerations in general. this session will present an approach to this problem that has been hammered out in discussions between senior regulators and CEOs of multinationals, discuss “living lab” experiments testing this new approach in the real world, and report on how multilateral organizations and nations are beginning to partner with private companies in order to allow them to exploit such data. The panelists will discuss and debate the merits of this approach, and comment on how they manage big data in their organizations.
