Last Saturday, January 28, the European Data Protection Day was celebrated to give visibility and promote good practices around privacy and data protection. In a context of growth of the digital economy, in which data is increasingly playing an important role in all areas, European providers such as Stackscale also emphasize the importance of data sovereignty and the development of European technological services.
Last Saturday, January 28, the European Data Protection Day was celebrated to commemorate the first legally binding international data protection instrument, adopted in the Council of Europe Convention 108 on that same day in 1981. Both privacy and protection of data are a growing concern among institutions, companies and citizens. This highlights the importance of committing to the development of European technological solutions and services that respect and promote the fundamental values of the European Union. As well as promoting the development of projects that strengthen the digital sovereignty of the EU. Here, initiatives focused on European digital sovereignty stand out, such as Gaia-X. In this regard, the European Union proposes various objectives to be achieved by 2030 within its Digital Decade program, such as ensuring that at least 80% of the population has basic digital skills , that 100% of essential public services are available online for citizens and companies, or that cloud adoption in companies in the EU rises to 75% – which represents an increase of more than 30% compared to the average adoption rate With a 38% increase in the number of weekly cyberattacks on corporate networks compared to 2021, according to data from Check Point Research, data protection and disaster recovery planning continue to rise among business priorities. Not only from the point of view of protecting critical, confidential or personal data to prevent it from being accessible by unauthorized persons or purposes, but also from the point of view of durability. According to experts, security and privacy They are paramount at all levels. David Carrero from Stackscale explains that "it is essential to address security at both a technical and organizational level, from infrastructure, storage and network to geo-replication, data encryption or identity management. This is especially important during the processes of digital transformation and cloud migration, in which the decentralization of data and workloads requires applying new approaches and security models, such as Zero Trust, with a focus on increasing the protection of data and applications regardless of location". Regarding the digitization of European companies, according to Eurostat data, in 2021 56% had reached a basic level of digital intensity —with a significant difference between SMEs (55%) and large companies (88%)—. This figure is still far from the goal of the Digital Decade program, according to which more than 90% of SMEs should have reached a basic level of digital intensity by 2030. Furthermore, only 18% have reached a high level. With the objective of offering high-end technological solutions and helping companies in their digital transformation, the Aire Group of which Stackscale is a part includes a wide range of cloud, connectivity and business continuity products with which to put sovereignty and protection of data at the center of digital strategy.
