Why Technology, Not Geography, Is Key to Cybersecurity by Carl Bildt     Print

Why Technology, Not Geography, Is Key to Cybersecurity, by Carl Bildt, former Swedish Foreign Minister and Prime Minister, article in Huffington Post. Bildt sounds an eloquent caution against government overreaction to very real cyber security threats. Among the misguided actions Bildt discusses is the recent European Court of Justice’s invalidation of the EU’s safe harbor regime for permitting international data flows, based, it appears, on the erroneous notion that data can be secured by localizing its storage as opposed to deploying available technology.
