Abstract

Recent revelations about corporate use of customer data, government collection of personal data, and security lapses resulting in the release of private information call to light the increasing threats to privacy made possible by information systems (IS). Questions such as identity management, data ownership, secondary use, information disposal, etc. come into play when we consider the ramifications of how IS impinge on individual privacy. Recent trends in IS research and pedagogy relate to big data and business analytics and as we see these technologies continue to grow in importance, so too will the issues they raise related to privacy. It is important and timely for the IS community to address privacy as we consider how to build information systems that collect personal data. In this panel, we will focus on research issues and trends related to privacy, particularly as it relates to designing, building, and teaching about IS.
