Trust, security and high technical performance builds back trust in cloud computing. Let’s find out how. 


Trust in cloud computing – the data sovereignty awareness


Public authorities and public companies own a treasure, which is now digital. There is a growing awareness of the importance of data. However, ensuring data sovereignty is still challenging for many companies. Yet it is the key to building cloud computing trust.

A lot has already happened. Last July 2018, Mounir Mahjoubi, then-Secretary of State for Digital Affairs in France, presented the French government’s Cloud strategy to increase usage and adoption by local and regional authorities, administration, and public institutions and accelerate digital transformation at the State level. Calls for bids are ongoing and include the Gafam.  Orange, which buried the first version of a sovereign cloud in 2015, recently re-launched the project to meet the needs and expectations that have become more and more mature.


What is the right context to build trust back in cloud computing?


The question today is not anymore about adopting the cloud or not, but how to get there, without compromising data security and privacy. In Europe, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), that came into effect in the spring of 2018, gives businesses and citizens more control over their personal data.  But at the same time across the Atlantic, the Freedom Act and more recently Cloud Act, raise concerns for IT managers and business leaders. Those US laws apply to French companies relying on American providers to store their data, and allow the American government to access data managed by Internet and Cloud giants.


What about the Eastern front? Alibaba, the Chinese giant, fourth biggest cloud provider in the world, recently expanded in Europe by opening data centers in the United Kingdom in order to simplify the access to the Chinese market for European companies. 


This is the right context to develop and adopt sovereign cloud, that stands for trust, security and high technical performance.
