Global governments see a range of opportunities in terms of defense, security, and public safety related improvements possible by leveraging massive amounts of data available in modern society. The US Government in particular sees data of various types (structured and unstructured) and from various sources as an opportunity to continuously improve predictive capabilities regarding its defense and homeland security programs. For Homeland Security, Predictive Analytics and Predictive Policing are rapidly becoming critically important tools, especially to military operations, counterterrorism, and disaster mitigation and recovery strategies. In 2015 alone, about US$333 million is allocated for the advancement of defence and security, in relation to tapping the potential of the Big Data. While the government acknowledges the use of Big Data to improve measures of national defense and homeland security, there is a looming question as to how the government, the civil society and the whole state adapt their interest with Big Data and transform it as a potential and relevant tool to improve the integrity of the national sovereignty.
