The Digital Governance Standards Institute (DGSI) is proud to announce the publication of the 1st edition of a National Standard of Canada, CAN/DGSI 100-8:2023, Data Governance – Part 8: Framework for Geo-residency and Sovereignty.
This standard provides guidance on the minimum requirements for organizations to protect data assets that reside in foreign entities, while taking advantage of the global technology ecosystems. Its contents are meant to guide organizations using jurisdictional and technology agnostic approaches.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to light the amount of work needed on the digital trust and safety level. Having an accessible framework available for Geo-Residency and Sovereignty will be beneficial for all organizations when it comes to the protection and safe-sharing of data that resides in foreign entities. Cloud Perspectives is pleased to support the work of the Digital Governance Standards Institute in creating CAN/DGSI 100-8: 2023 Data Governance – Part 8: Framework for Geo-Residency and Sovereignty.”
– Steven Woodward, CEO of Cloud Perspectives
The CAN/DGSI 100-8 standard has been revised to reflect current industry practice, as well as to ensure that all employers have access to the latest information. The requirements in the standard ensure that organizations consider the potential threats that arise from governing data across geographic borders and are prepared to mitigate those risks through a safe and reliable process.
This 1st edition of CAN/DGSI 100-8 is now available for download on the Digital Governance Council website.
