Evolving data storage design for a highly regulated financial sector.

Global service providers in highly regulated financial sectors must accommodate an ever-changing, sometimes competing, landscape of regulatory concerns. This project seeks to determine a reasonable path forward in technology design and adoption to accommodate current and anticipated data privacy and data residency concerns, making it possible to keep data within borders while still facilitating collaboration across those borders. Consumers are increasingly aware of the collection of their private data, but are often unaware of cross-border movement of their data. Businesses are cognizant of the limited (or untested) reach of legal and regulatory recourse when their data (and their customersÂ’ data) unnecessarily crosses borders. This project seeks to add technology frameworks to aid in addressing those customer and business concerns.
