Abstract

There is no doubting the value of “big data”. As we transition from an industrialeconomy to a “smart information” economy, access to data is becoming increasinglyvalued by private enterprise. The data and/or the control of access to thatinformation is increasingly seen as a source of wealth generation, with thepotential for specialised applications being developed that can be sold for significantcommercial gain. For a long time, government has been the keeper (if notthe creator) of much of this recorded data. The retained information is extensive.It extends to licence information, census records, health information, electoralrecords, firearm ownership; to name just a few.
