The explosion in information technology tools and capabilities has enabled advanced analytics using Big Data. However, the benefits of this new technology area are often coupled with data privacy issues. In these large information repositories, personally identifiable information (PII), such as names, addresses and social security numbers may exist. Financial data such as credit card and account numbers might also be found in large volumes across these environments and pose serious concerns related to access. Through careful planning, testing, pre-production preparation and the appropriate use of technology, much of these concerns can be alleviated.
