White House Requests Public Input On Big Data Privacy

big dataThe Office of Science and Technology Policy has launched a federal review to examine big data management issues that it believes could shape future policies on citizen privacy, Nextgov reported Thursday.

Joseph Marks writes the review will be led by John Podesta, a White House counselor, and work to gather public feedback on how  government and business organizations can safeguard privacy when using analytics technology.

Organizations use big data analytics to manage purchases, healthcare, social media and online searches.

OSTP wants to know if existing policy frameworks adequately address big data privacy and what technological practices may affect big data collection and storage, according to Marks.

Nextgov reports the office will co-host a forum themed “The Social, Cultural, & Ethical Dimensions of Big Data” at the New York University on Monday.
