It’s hard to tune into the news without encountering a story about the proliferation and growing availability of data and its impacts—good and bad. In the fast-paced, brave new world of “big data,” businesses are faced with opportunities to rake in more data and leverage the data they already have, but the complex legal and regulatory context in which this data exists still is evolving. A new book from two Foley & Lardner partners aimed at businesspeople and legal practitioners explains how big data can help businesses, and it outlines the legal issues and frameworks those who use this growing pile of info should keep in mind.

“Big Data: A Business and Legal Guide” (Auerbach Publications, 2014) was written by James Kalyvas, chair of the firm’s technology transactions and outsourcing practice, and cochair of its privacy, security and information management practice; and Michael Overly, a member of the firm’s technology transactions and outsourcing, and privacy, security and information management practices. The book, which also contains contributions from many other Foley & Lardner lawyers with expertise in various practice areas, can be a guide for in-house counsel who want to use their troves of data to help the business flourish.
