Data Sovereignty online conference

February 17, 2022, Warsaw;

Under the patronage of the French Presidency of the Council of the European Union:

It is currently France’s turn to hold the 6-month Presidency of the European Union’s Council from 1st January to 30th June 2022. During this period when France is leading the political debate at European level, it endeavours to build consensus among the European Member States on the main topics on the European agenda, such as the EU Digital Markets Act and Digital Services Act (DSA/DMA) or the EU Climate Law (the so-called “Fit-for-55” package).


About the Data Sovereignty Event

We are pleased to cordially invite you to a conference on data sovereignty in the eHealth sector, which seems to be one of the most critical areas when it comes to sensitive data.

Data is the valuable. To define data sovereignty specifically, it relates to who owns our sensitive information. The pandemic has made most users conscious of the significance of securing an appropriate level of data security. Digital technology plays a critical role, as it is changing the eHealth industry. Proven and safe technology is crucial in the healthcare services provision, as well as in the organization of the healthcare system. Data sovereignty allows value to be created from highly sensitive human data and enables individuals to protect their data – at the same time.

What is Digital Sovereignty for OVHcloud?

Digital sovereignty can be defined as the ability of a state to control all digital resources, from an economic, social and political point of view — free from third parties or external influences. In short, it fosters freedom of choice and enables us to be less dependent on non-European infrastructures, platforms and internet access points.

Data sovereignty extends this notion to organisations. It determines their ability to protect their data against possible interference, particularly when it comes to data security. It also enables them to act independently, particularly in areas that are strategic for their development. Compliance with European regulations — which limits the possibility of transferring personal data outside the European Union — is a guarantee of data sovereignty.
