Big Data, Big Issues

Reminder: Cowan, DeBaets, Abrahams and Sheppard LLP is proud to sponsor the Fordham Center on Law and Information Policy’s (CLIP’s) Sixth Annual Symposium, Big Data, Big Issues later this week. (Friday, March 2, 8:30am to 6pm). The event, which immediately sold out, addresses the new form of data processing, “Big Data,” in which computers analyze massive databases to make useful predictions, and the benefits and risks this brings, including threats to individual privacy. The conference examines the rise of Big Data and considers how the law can address its privacy concerns without hampering innovation. CDAS Partner Eleanor M. Lackman serves on the Board of CLIP which helped advise, guide, and plan the conference — CLIP’s marquee event of the year. Since the Board was formed attendance as tripled and let to happily surprising rapid sellouts.
