Panel on the Impact of Data Sovereignty on Cybersecurity and Reliability

Had a really interesting discussion on the impact of data sovereignty on cybersecurity and reliability as part of the Pearcey Conversations online seminar 30 June 2021.

We discussed the complications of laws and policies that might require data to reside in a given country, and how that might be complicated by the challenge that, if using cloud systems for reliability and security, may need to keep data across multiple jurisdictions.

The panel was moderated by Simon Foster, and fellow panellists were Dr Eduardo Celeste, Rachael Groves, and Stuart Hudson.
