Bryan Handlos and Kris Karnes Publish Article on Banking in the Era of Big Data

Publications - Article | April 14, 2016

Kutak Rock attorneys Bryan Handlos and Kris Karnes authored the article “Banking in the Big Data Era: Brave New World?” in the March/April 2016 issue of Nebraska Banker.

In the article Handlos and Karnes explain that though "big data" does not necessarily involve personally identifiable information, the things that can be done with big data are, depending on your point of reference, either amazing and exhilarating or worrisome, perhaps even ominous. Given this, bankers need to understand regulatory issues and must evaluate the good that banks can do, or the harm they may cause, when using "big data."

The article appears as the Counselor's Corner feature of the magazine and can be read in its entirety by clicking on the Related File below.
