Thanks to the internet of things (IoT), the world is connected like never before. While that fact has opened up a vast array of opportunities when it comes to communication and data sharing across platforms, it also come with concerns. Specifically, how can we ensure that our personal information is protected? And what roles do data scientists and big data play in protecting that sensitive information?

Society as a whole has come to favor wireless connectivity and 24/7 accessibility, but we need to ensure that our data privacy remains intact in the age of IoT-driven technology.
