The capacity and capability to process big data and convert them to smart data generate tremendous potential for creating value. It is as fact that big data can trigger new innovative business models and products. At the same time, the smart processing of data creates vast opportunities for innovation and growth, while raising questions that need to be addressed, such as how can vast data amounts be processed efficiently and effectively, how relevant data processing procedures conform to prevailing legal norms, how can data classified as sensitive best be processed, when is it imperative to anonymize personal data etc.
At this year´s Smart Data Conference we will address a wide range of data aspects related to technology, economy and to the legal system in terms of sensitive data protection and security solutions.
