Privacy and Security Principles for Farm Data

In late 2014, seven farm groups and six Ag Tech Providers signed a document entitled “Privacy and Security Principles for Farm Data”.  This document highlighted a dozen principles regarding the use of Big Data in agriculture.  What were they?  How was a concensus reached:  Has that document “made a difference”?  Is that the end of the partnership between the thirteen groups?  What’s next?
