The world has at least three internets, each associated with different cultural and legal frameworks of cybersecurity and data protection. The Chinese framework begins with “cyber-sovereignty,” the power of the Chinese state to control data in-country and crossing its borders, including personal data, trade/state secrets and political/cultural issues. Europe – recently ascendant – begins with personal data protection. The U.S. invented the insecure internet, but is now reevaluating with the move to 5G and the vulnerabilities of the IoT, and needs to look both ways, as well as toward other attackers and protection frameworks. This session provides practical lessons for companies trying to craft responsive strategies and policies that comply with these different global regulatory approaches.
