Yes, we all get a bit sloppy from time to time and that small slip up from any employee from top to bottom of the chain can lead to some embarassing or even costly privacy breaches. It's always refreshing to get more insights into the issues involved in privacy protections.

I figure I'm the only person who's actions I can keep an eye on so it's up to me. That said, I've used Facebook so many times to sign up for other things that my data has speen spread wide and far.  What I do try to do is not save my credit card and banking information with other sites and other sensative information.



 

I've long considered sending things over the Internet similar to sending postcards through the mail – maybe slightly more secure than, say, skywriting your messages or posting them on a public bulletin board in the supermarket.

The big problem is all that personal financial-type stuff that one way or another you're often required to send in order to get something done. This AM in order to process a transaction I had to fill out a form with my credit card info and signature and then fax it somewhere. Definitely made me nervous, but it was probably more secure than the Internet ...

Too often we gravity to the extreme positions. either, or, seldom both to proper measure.

@Lyndon. Good point about liberty and security. Privacy certainly bridges both.

Civil liberties and how they are interpreted in publicized instances will be contentious for a while.  Data is associated with the people involved in many instances.  We're still working to understand how much data accurately represents police gun violence against african-americans, and there are other social issues where we are learning the data gaps.  We're just on the cusp of representing our world digitally.

Given the nature of analytics becoming so ingrained in business, alongside data, I'm surprised anyone would look to one person to "know it all". It's a system that require systematic responses alongside that singular management.

Still standing by a prediction that big data as a buzzword will die as we turn out focus to the analytics, not the scale of the data.
Reflecting on 2016; it was the year that so many analytics elements came together.
After being largely undefined for a few years the role of Chief Data Officer may finally be taking shape, as illustrated in a survey of federal agencies.
The new A2 cartoons highlights the big data privacy question that nothing comes for free.
The right blend of analytics and experience can be the key to success in any market, but perhaps no place more than in retail. Join A2 Radio today at 2 pm as we are joined by author and SAS retail expert Brittany Bullard.
