Abstract: A struggle has emerged in relation to the sacredness of one’s private information and the importance of moving forward in a digital world of social media, smart devices, and Big Data – an era known as the Age of Context. The purpose of this paper is to make a clear case for concern regarding the seriousness of keeping data private while facilitating efforts to encourage and support emerging technologies. This investigative process included the pursuit of relevant articles and published works that provided a clear and relevant picture of the current state of affairs concerning Big Data and privacy. After a review of the literature, an analysis of data collection methods, a discovery of Big Data processes and purposes, and the identification of risks pertaining to the individual, the military, and the country, it was determined that significant concerns do exist pertaining to data collection, Big Data, and privacy. These concerns not only pertain to the individual, but with military effectiveness and national security.
