3. Data Localization to Promote Privacy
With the rising volumes of data generated throughout the world, data centers need to comply with their particular nation’s security regulations
. Data stored outside the country tends to get exploited and monetized by competing nations.
"According to Statista, in 2021, the world will have generated 74 Zettabytes of data, up from 64.2 Zettabytes in 2020."
This brings about the need for "data localization," i.e., storing and retrieving data within the geographical boundaries of a country to conform to its data protection regulations
. Cloud4C has set up a new in-country data center in collaboration with the telecom company, Telecom Egypt, to restrict data flow outside Egypt.
1. Egypt’s In-country Data Localization Through Cloud4C Data Center:
Egypt has issued a law on the protection
of personal data in 2020, and in accordance with it, they are now moving to data localization. Cloud4C is one of the vendors for secure public and enterprise cloud solutions. They are backed by the finest technology giants to bring the best cyber security solutions to their cloud data centers. In Egypt, sectors such as government, financial services, and healthcare will benefit from data localization, promoting their "intelligent enterprises" agenda.
2. Adoption Rate of Data Localization:
As of 2021, 62 out of 195 countries have implemented data localization. In 2017, only 35 out of 195 countries had done so. The rate of adoption of data localization will be 31.79% in 2021, up from a mere 17.94% in 2017.
3. Data Localization to Promote Privacy:
One of the top security
plans for all nations has been to put up regulatory barriers to restrict the flow of data across their borders. Countries that are in competition with each other can't let other countries use their data to make money, so they keep their data production and data assets to themselves. A strict data localization norm helps promote privacy.
Some of the world's biggest developing economies are now thinking about data localization as a way to stop cybercrime. For many years to come, competing countries will continue to be interested in data privacy.
