Webinar | What is digital Sovereignty and Why we should talk about it?

Top 5 Reasons why we should talk about digital sovereignty:

Protection of expertise:
Digital sovereignty is essential for the protection of data assets based on domain expertise. Otherwise, due to their intangible nature, data can be copied and made available indefinitely, without value or control.

Economic growth: digital sovereignty can also promote economic growth by encouraging the development of local digital infrastructure and services and the growth of indigenous technology companies. The moment we take back control of our data, we set the terms for how it may be used and who may use our data.

Protecting privacy: digital sovereignty can help protect our privacy by ensuring that personal data is stored and processed within the borders of the country and subject to the laws and regulations there. Remember the introduction of the GDPR? Welcome to the era of digital sovereignty!

Protection from foreign influence: digital sovereignty can help protect against foreign influence and manipulation, especially in the areas of information and elections (#NetStates).

Global power dynamics: As digital technologies increasingly influence global power dynamics; digital sovereignty is becoming a key issue in international relations. Countries are increasingly concerned about the dominance of a few large economies and technology companies. Digital sovereignty for more control over digital infrastructures, data and their use.

In summary, digital sovereignty is an important concept that has significant implications for national security, citizen privacy, economic growth, and international relations.
