    • Data Localization: An Opportunity or a Threat to a Truly Digital Europe

      Data Localization: An Opportunity or a Threat to a Truly Digital Europe

      The Internet serves as an enabler across a great many number of economic sectors. The data it produces has grown exponentially in recent years, to the point where data is in itself a hugely powerful commodity. But owing to various political motives, some European governments have started demanding that their citizens’ data be hosted within the state’s jurisdiction, thus restricting the free flow of information across borders.

      What impact will this increased data-localization have on the data centre sector specifically and the Internet center generally? Do moves towards data localization threaten the ambition to create a truly digital Europe or are they an appropriate response to privacy fears in the post-Snowden world?
