Policy-making and its subsequent implementation is necessary to deal with societal problems.” (Janssen, 2015)

“Policy-making is driven by the need to solve societal problems and should result in interventions to solve these societal problems.” (Janssen, 2015)

“Examples of societal problems are unemployment, pollution, water quality, safety, criminality, well-being, health, and immigration.” (Janssen, 2015)

2.Pick a specific topic that relates to public policy affecting data management, and

3 Privacy Concerns

Discussion: How are IT researchers contributing to the body of knowledge regarding information systems and individual privacy?

Choose 2 peer-reviewed studies

Describe the phenomenon, research methodology, population and findings

In your response, pay attention to how the research is conducted, not just subject matter

As doctoral students, you’re learning to be researchers

Again, the scarcity of academic articles might lead you to use practitioner sources, which is fine and provide the industry language needed to perform Google Scholar searches
