Increasingly, data links companies and countries together in ways never before imagined. As such, companies around the world must be more cognizant of and adhere to other countries’ rules and regulations for processing, handling and storing data — and be able to manage the constant flux of emerging technology risks.
One of Peak 10’s U.S.-based clients experienced this firsthand. With the help of Peak 10, the client was able to satisfy the IT security requirements imposed by a country halfway around the world — requirements it had to meet because of the operations of one of its own clients in that country. Its story exemplifies the importance of understanding the reach of other nations’ laws and regulations pertaining to data privacy and protection — and for working with service providers that can assist in meeting the requirements of those laws and regulations.
