Data Governance Across Geopolitical Borders

Think Tank - 4:25 pm - 4:50 pm

Technology and globalization have leveled national borders, but there is an emerging trend towards digital protectionism to reinstate those borders. Nation-states are imposing data localization requirements and data governance initiatives that restrict the transfer and storage of data and pose serious questions about data privacy, surveillance and jurisdiction. Enter the post-digital age where the cultural battlelines are drawn in data and technology, and regulations emerging from moves toward digital sovereignty are the next challenge for global companies to navigate.


  1. Information governance and security norms are shaped by cultural and geopolitical factors.
  2. Data is no longer a neutral, objective concept; issues of jurisdiction and integrity arise as it is shared across diverse national and legal contexts.
  3. Monitoring, analyzing, and complying with rapidly changing and diverse regulatory scenarios around the globe is the next challenge for CISOs.
