In an Information Age, the global flow of data over the Internet has become the lifeblood of economies across the world. But driven by concerns over privacy, security, surveillance, and law enforcement, governments are erecting borders in cyberspace, breaking apart the World Wide Web. These 'data localization" measures specifically encumber the transfer of data overseas through a number of different laws and regulations.
What does this mean for the average business? In Anupam Chander's new study, 'Breaking the Web', he discusses how data localization laws impact the security of data, can raise costs for local businesses, reduce consumers' access to global services, and interfere with using the latest technological advances. Whether a small business or a multinational corporation, learn how data localization can impact your business and what you can do to protect your business.
