The use of Big Data by various industries is not a new phenomenon, and it is especially relevant to sectors such as Igaming, banking and securities, and healthcare. At first glance, the use of Big Data by entities does not seem to imply that there would be any GDPR obligations, that is, until a company looks deeper into the Big Data sets it uses. How is this possible?
The current practice and case-law show us that while companies are aware of the GDPR requirements, they do not always take into account GDPR related obligations when it comes to the use of Big Data. Thus, the session will tackle the relationship between Big Data and the GDPR, using practical examples specifically focusing on the Igaming industry. Further, we will address what could be done in order to ensure GDPR compliance when using Big Data and, lastly, the session will discuss and delve deeper into the potential compliance obligations that may arise from the use of Big Data within the mentioned industries while bringing awareness to the current practices and case law.
