Digital Sovereignty - Unleashed

04 Apr 2023

In a world where most data is processed and stored across geographical borders, often using foreign technologies, many governments are raising valid concerns around data, technological and digital sovereignty. The influence of non-EU/non-UK tech companies has become a concern for policy-makers, especially with regard to their impact on the EU's data economy and innovation potential, on EU privacy and data protection and on the establishment of a secure and safe digital environment.
There is growing concern that the citizens, businesses and Member States of the European Union (EU) are gradually losing control over their data, over their capacity for innovation, and over their ability to shape and enforce legislation in the digital environment.
