In 2004, the total amount of data stored on the entire Internet was roughly equivalent to 100 years of all television content. By 2011, the amount of data stored electronically was equivalent to 36 million years of high-def (HD) video, and the numbers continue to increase exponentially. With all of that information comes opportunity, and risk.
How can business executives and legal counsel understand Big Data and its implications on corporate decision-making? With the publication of Big Data: A Business and Legal Guide, Foley attorneys James Kalyvas and Michael Overly hope to “…help executives, managers, and counsel to better understand the interrelationships between Big Data and the laws, regulations, and contracting practices that may have an impact on the use of Big Data” and “…introduce the concept of a ‘thoughtful pause’ between hearing what you can do with Big Data and deciding whether to do it.”
