This not only increases the complexity of the customer solution but brings together stakeholders from departments previously remote in the security design decision.

Big Data Is Helping Us Fight The Coronavirus But At What Cost To Our Privacy

Article | April 9, 2020

In some ways at least, technology has been able to tell us more about how and where the virus is spreading. Mostly, this has involved creatively harnessing the power of big data using temperature readings from smart thermometers to detect COVID-19 hot spots, or aggregating cellphone location data to point to the areas of the country where people are staying home.
