Volume in data storage is growing more than ever before. This phenomenon is caused by the participation of governments and firms as well as general users. As for big data, governments and public agencies are likely to play important roles in applications since they can access and operate personal data for public purposes. In this study, the author examined the status and countermeasure of big data from different countries and drew some common grounds. The suggestions are as follows. First of all, securing manpower and technology have to take precedence. In addition, share and development between the government and the private sector are required. And organizations should come up with long-term strategies along with the development of data loading and analysis. In conclusion, the author propose the recognition of the importance of data management, privacy protection and the expansion of field application possibilities for political usage of big data.
