For several years, “big data” has been a go-to topic for technologists, futurists, business leaders and more. Often times, these discussions include ethical debates regarding the collection and use of aggregated data and how organizations use that information. These questions are also at the crux of a newer debate around so-called “little data” – daily step count, heart rate data, etc. gathered by fitness trackers, mobile devices and more – and the ethics and privacy concerns that arise from gathering that information.

Jason Thomas, chief of innovation for Thomson Reuters Special Services, takes a look at the issues that surrounding little data… and not so little risks related to its collection… in the first installment of a new podcast series from Cybersecurity Law & Strategy. You can listen to that podcast here.
