Abstract

The significant growth in recent years in the availability of behavioral big data to companies, governments, researchers and other organizations and individuals has led to many novel developments and technologies. This fast technological advance has far outpaced the speed of updates to ethical research codes and regulation of data privacy and human subjects data collection, storage, and use. The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which comes into effect in May 2018, can have a large impact on data scientists and researchers who use BBD in industry and in academia not only in the EU but around the world. We use the Information Quality (InfoQ) framework by Kenett and Shmueli (2014) to identify the key GDPR concepts and analyze the various potential changes that can affect data scientists in the new data privacy regulation era.

Keywords: Data Privacy, Regulation, Data Science, GDPR
