Organizations around the world have had to rapidly adjust to new technologies to maintain business continuity during this challenging time. With data residency requirements temporarily lifted in specific regions, many companies and public institutions are now using platforms and applications that were previously restricted.
But when this crisis has passed, data residency requirements will return, and IT professionals will have to make sure their new remote work practices comply. Failure to do so could not only compromise your data, it could also result in heavy fines and penalties.
During this period of change, we’ve received a lot of queries regarding data residency for a remote workforce. We addressed these queries in a webinar, which we have made available for you on demand.
- Data residency: why it matters
- Potential pitfalls for a remote workforce
- Addressing data residency in the cloud
This session was presented by Mark Damm, FuseForward Founder and CTO. Mark is a skilled system architect with over 30 years’ experience designing and leading the implementation of complex IT systems.
“While the regulations are lifted in a state of emergency, it doesn’t mean that they are going to be there forever,” says Mark. “Organizations should have measures in place to ensure that all data is repatriated back to their original residence when the crisis folds.”
This event was the first installment of our Remote Control Series—a webinar series designed to provide quick answers to common technical challenges we are facing, including business continuity, online service delivery and cloud computing. Register for the next session to join the discussion.
