Privacy Regulations

Expect more national regulations and standards for privacy and international file sharing.

Countries are increasingly looking to protect their citizens' data, in much the same way corporations look to protect their highly sensitive information. This could potentially create headaches for global enterprise IT managers trying to keep track of where company data is being stored.

We will see more nations follow the EU's lead in requiring data to be stored out of the NSA's reach. Enterprises should consider localized storage solutions that are either privately owned or maintained on-premise. These solutions offer complete data sovereignty, and fully comply with geographic data segregation requirements. An added incentive to data sovereignty is that it also offers an economic opportunity for local cloud storage firms.

In the cybersecurity world, 2015 was a year marked by Big Data breaches and the emergence of the privacy vs. national security debate. It's safe to say, therefore, that companies in 2016 will turn to security experts to ensure that they aren't caught off guard by the shifting threat and regulatory landscapes. As many companies consider security to be their biggest concern for 2016, it's important to be prepared and not be caught unaware.
