Big Data and the Law

Pavilion F, conference hall F2
Digitalization: The Law of the Future or the Future of the Law?
The processing of big data is a field which is developing apace in Russia. The amount of data being processed is constantly growing – a fact not lost on the private or public sector. However, a legal regime governing big data has yet to fully take shape. This creates certain difficulties, and leaves the potential for rights to be violated. How should a legal regime for big data look? What is the most effective approach to protecting personal data? What are the prospects for using big data in public administration and business, and what legal instruments can be employed to facilitate this?
