The legal challenges of working with sports analytics and big data
published on 31 August 2017
The LawInSport 3rd Annual Conference taking place in one weeks is all set for its sports analytics panel.
Sports analytics and big data are two major buzzwords within the sports sector, whether it be on the business side or performance related. It is widely acknowledged that capturing and utilising good data to improve on-the-field and off-the-field performance is critical to success in modern sport.
At the LawInSport Annual Conference a panel of technology, sport and legal experts will discuss the differing approaches to how sport organisations handle the capturing and distribution of data, and the legal challenges associated with this particularly in light of the new EU General Data Protection Regulation, and privacy issues that arise as a consequence of capturing data.
The panelists are comprised of:
- Warren Phelops, Partner at K&L Gates LLP (Chair)
- Michael D'Auria, VP Business Development at Second Spectrum
- Dr Travis Wild, Co-founder at CEO Felix
- Tom Burrows, Head of Legal - Content at Perform Group
The two-day LawInSport conference will also offer unrivalled networking opportunity with the leading experts, lawyers and executives in the sports sector as well as 12 interactive panel discussions.
