Big Data

Big Data is the collection of large and complex data sets and the analysis of these data sets for relationships.  There are many factors to consider, specifically minimizing privacy risks, possible legal frameworks governing the data, transparency in the use of the data, technical measures, and anonymization/de-identification. As the growth of big data analytics increase, always consider the privacy risks and consult the Privacy Office at privacy@psu.edu.
