The ECIS 2022 Event on the European Commission’s Data Act proposal was held on 7th December 2022.

This is shaping up to be a cornerstone of regulation in the technology sector – a potential global benchmark for data and cloud, comparable to GDPR for data privacy in terms of its likely impact.

We focused on cloud interoperability, both in terms of software and data and discussed the provisions in the proposal concerning switching and interoperability. In the first part, we looked closely at the Data Act and its provisions. In the second part, the focus was on the proposed Act within the broader landscape of technology regulation and its likely global impact on international trade and cybersecurity.
