In this assignment, I would like you to read the following questions, perform a little research on the Internet (remember your Reference Page), and write a document that answers the issues raised in the questions. This assignment covers Big Data, Security, U.S. Laws regarding Data and Security, and Privacy.
You may want to think about a couple of recent current events: the Target Data Scandal; the MH370 Malaysia Airlines Incident; Enron; and “DMCA and Garage Door Openers”.
Today, it is impossible for business organizations of all sizes and in all industries to ignore data collection, storage, processing, and usage. More and more companies are getting into trouble because of security breaches involving the data they have collected about customers and employees and business partners.
6.What impact do you think the Target case will have on any future proposed laws?
7.Do you agree that data is an organization’s most valuable asset? Explain (briefly).
8.Do you agree that individuals have the right to “go off of the grid”? Explain (briefly).
9.Think about the Patriot Act. The spirit of the Act is that the good of the many outweighs the rights of the few.
Do you agree? Do you agree knowing that the Act nullifies many of the Amendments to the U.S. Constitution?
How does this fit with your answer regarding the right to “go off of the grid?”
Write a report and include References.
