Question 11

Economic and policy aspects of big data and digital identity in international telecommunications services and networks

(New Question)

Motivation
The advent of the digital world has implied a progressively ambient and ubiquitous use of technology and communication services, leading to an increase in the amount, quality, and accuracy of data generated and collected on a global scale. With the increasingly rapid innovation and developments in big data, and the consequent need for comprehensive, global, secure, interoperable and minimalistic digital identity policies assumes a greater urgency.  As the nameless and faceless environments of  ICT networks and the internet continue to expand, the lack of systems in place to safely and securely use big data and at the same time protect the consumer, will have significant implications for access, innovation, investment, and the global economy as a whole.
