With new privacy laws implemented around the globe, data localization requirements, extended territorial outreach, and often substantial restrictions on international data transfers are on the rise. Can companies provide or use international data services in this increasingly national privacy environment? Are territorial cluster solutions the consequence of these developments or is there still room for international (cloud) solutions? An international expert panel will provide overviews of the situation in particular in Europe and Asia-Pacific and discuss the practical impact of data localization on international privacy strategies.
