Innovation vs Privacy:
The Open Data Economy Dilemma
The open data economy – meaning public information and data shared from private sources – is already estimated to generate $3 trillion in economic value per annum globally (McKinsey, 2013). Global infrastructure for responsible, ethical data liquidity is still required to unlock the next wave of cross-border, data-driven growth. Regions around the world are approaching the data economy in different ways, with a few leading light markets asserting their position on how to remain competitive with data-driven innovation while still protecting consumer privacy.
Get insight into the current data economy landscape in front-running markets around the world, and the extent to which they are harnessing the potential of the data economy.
This whitepaper highlights the significant opportunities and challenges, and lays out how to maximise the scale of this once-in-a-generation industry transformation to facilitate safe, ethical cross-border flow of data and insight.
