Big data can open up unknown worlds. It is the combination of massive amounts of data and unprecedented processing power that make this possible. How convenient is it if, based on purchasing behaviour, a supermarket knows what the most advantageous pricing is for certain products? The economic promise of big data is great for businesses. New business models, products and services emerge. Not being involved is not an option. However, Big Data can also be problematic in terms of privacy. Both the current privacy legislation and the new, stricter GDPR regulation have an impact on how Belgian companies have to handle digital personal data. This gives rise to a great many questions:
Have you already identified the personal data of your employees, your customers, your suppliers?
If so, have you followed the correct procedure? / If not, do you know what the correct procedure is?
Are you fully aware of which data are “personal”?
Can you show where the data on a particular person are stored?
