Big data is predicted to fundamentally change the competitive landscape within which firms price, customize products or services and monitor market trends.

Bringing new waves of productivity and innovation, big data is raising significant legal questions and regulatory challenges in the areas of competition, privacy and data security.

Fasken invites you to an interactive breakfast seminar to discuss emerging legal and regulatory issues for businesses arising from big data, with special guest Dr. Paul Johnson (T.D. MacDonald Chair in Industrial Economics from Canada’s Competition Bureau). Dr. Johnson’s comments will include insights arising from the Competition Bureau’s recently published report on big data and innovation.

The emphasis will be on competition, privacy and data security as well as practical advice and best practices for addressing these issues and mitigating risk. Specific topics include:

  • The Competition Bureau’s recently published report outlining key competition policy and enforcement themes related to big data
  • The role of big data as a competitive asset and input for products and services
  • Consumer consent and big data applications
  • Mitigating and addressing data security
  • The use of consumer data: where are the boundaries?
  • Cartels: can big data overcome agreements through algorithmic collusion?
