Digital footprints follow you forever: Where’s my data?!

Daily we (individuals and businesses) expand our digital footprint through numerous ways. Moreover, Big Data is an ever-growing business and our data is being collected and analyzed in mass. Additionally, enterprises have the increasing need to work across sites and geographical locations, migrating data between clouds. Our data is potentially scattered ubiquitously, and although we mostly offer our data in return for a service, do we actually know where our data is, how it is being processed (used and stored), and the associated consequences? How can we better manage our data and keep on top of where it is in the global, physical, and virtual expanse?
