Big Data Law and Policy Seminar

Course Description: While many know that businesses and governments increasingly rely on “big data,” few understand what big data is, the benefits and risks that it creates, or the laws that govern it. The seminar will introduce big data; describe how it generates value; explain how it poses risks to cybersecurity, privacy and equal opportunity; and explore the laws and policies that govern this dynamic and increasingly significant area. The course is relevant to any student interested in law and technology.
