This presentation and resource list is from the HSx Homeland Security Course on the Role of Big Data. "While not exhaustive, the following resources provide a roadmap to understanding the way big data is redefining how we gather, store, manage, and apply information. A variety of topics are covered including big data's role in changing societal organization, privacy and legal issues, and the advantage disadvantages, and ethical implications of the use of big data in planning and decision-making across business and government. These resources provide a baseline of understanding, but as the strategic environment continues to evolve, new data will become available and resource lists will require updates." Advanced Thinking in Homeland Security (HSx) is an 18-month collaborative program from the Center for Homeland Defense and Security.
