Big data—dubbed “the new oil” by the World Economic Forum—can improve decision making, reduce time to market and increase profits. But it can also raise significant risk, ranging from disastrous data breaches to privacy and compliance concerns.


To help enterprises retain control of their massive and fast-changing information, ISACA has issued new guidance/ Privacy and Big Data:  An ISACA White Paper outlines critical governance and assurance considerations and lists 26 key questions.

  1. Can we trust our sources of big data?
  2. What information are we collecting without exposing the enterprise to legal and regulatory battles?
  3. How will we protect our sources, our processes and our decisions from theft and corruption?
  4. What policies are in place to ensure that employees keep stakeholder information confidential during and after employment?
  5. What actions are we taking that create trends that can be exploited by our rivals?
