POLICY RECOMMENDATION PAPER
Embracing technology, preserving data sovereignty
This paper is the result of the Huawei Technologies (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (Huawei Malaysia), MyDIGITAL Corporation and the Institute of Strategic & International Studies (ISIS) Malaysia organised webinar, Digital age: embracing technology, preserving data sovereignty on 12 May 2022. The objective of the webinar was to raise awareness among the government, its agencies and the public about preserving data sovereignty while using digital technology, such as cloud, in the age of digital transformation.
Government cloud services are a new development at the intersection of electronic government and cloud computing, which promises more effective and efficient government services. While cloud transformation and enhanced connectivity are some of the most significant focus areas to accelerate the nation’s digital economy building blocks, they have also triggered governments’ concern for data sovereignty and security. The webinar addressed some of these issues, including cybersecurity as a critical component in building the digital ecosystem for Malaysia.
