Your data is subject to the laws of the country in which it resides: that’s the concept of data sovereignty.
In the past, that’s been straightforward enough: your business data has probably sat on your server, maybe right there in your office. There’s no doubt it’s in New Zealand. You can pretty much see it – or at least the metal and plastic encasing it.
But now things are more complicated. A lot of online services and applications are based overseas.
So when it comes to storing your data with a cloud provider, it’s really important you understand where your data is kept.
It’s a big and real concern. For example, 56% of respondents to an Australian legal survey cited “data sovereignty” as their main concern about cloud services.
Even if a provider is based in New Zealand, it might be that they resell the service or space.
All our cloud services are based in New Zealand. Your data never leaves the country.
