Big data is a concept which is both a gain and a boon to the society as it made the analysis meaningful and helped in taking inform decision. The only hurdle big data was facing of proprietor systems due to hurdles in flow of data. This challenge was solved by IOT as this enabled seamless flow of data. Till the time the companies / organizations are using the required amount of data and provide adequate combos and offers the Big data analysis is a gain to us but the moment these organizations / companies collects all sort of data (not required) like recording all conversations, taping of text messages etc it becomes a challenge for the law makers. With digitalization IOT took place which is creating more issues in case of Big data collection. An IOT provides all gain and pleasure to a person but with the help of small sensors installed in it they captures / collects / records all the data going around it. Till the time the data analysis was performed there was no issues but the moment data analytics took place it created a privacy and security issues.
