Geneva/Davos (ots) - Cloud Computing Need not be a Problem for
Governments - Provided the Right Approach is Taken
Recent developments have woken many governments up to the reality
of Cyberspace and how it is challenging the traditional conception of
Sovereignty. "With data being stored virtually anywhere in the world
and government employees and citizens using information technology
systems that are hosted and operated from anywhere (even outside of
their jurisdiction), the expected sovereign rights over that data and
those communications is frequently lost" said Juan Avellan, Deputy
CEO in charge of Data Sovereignty at WISeKey.
Many information technology companies are telling governments that
secure information technologies are enough to ensure sovereignty over
their data. Others are stating that new legislation is needed. All in
all, the solutions they propose are partial and unsatisfactory.
WISeKey, as a World Economic Forum Global Growth company, has been
at the forefront of balancing technology, law, policy and geopolitics
from its headquarters in Switzerland (and its bases in different
regions). WISeKey has developed over the years solutions to the
problems of State sovereignty and the challenges brought on by
"WISeKey´s solutions are not limited to technology or changing
laws - WISeKey proposes a comprehensive and multdisciplinary approach
based on the existing legal frameworks using technologies that are
widely available combined with very clear digital trust frameworks.
WISeKey´s approach elegantly integrates into current law,
international diplomatic protocols with an institutional framework
that provides governments with a practical and reliable long-term
solution", said Carlos Moreira Founder CEO WISeKey.
WISeKey is making available its solutions and experts to
governments globally who wish to solve these problems. Please visit
