Cybersecurity and economic diplomacy: the role of data embassies in promoting trade and investment in Germany

7. Juli 2023 @ 12:00 - 14:00

Zur Videoaufnahme

During this PizzaSeminar, Ransom Ngenge will discuss the potential benefits of data embassies within the context of Germany’s digital economy, which is driven by the increasing significance of data as a vital economic asset.

On the one hand, accepting to host data embassies of other countries on its national territory can bring various benefits to Germany, including strengthening international cooperation and fostering economic growth. On the other hand, Germany can exploit the opportunity to open data embassies overseas that will strengthen its data security and solidify its status as a pioneer in data protection and digital diplomacy. Data embassies constitute the foreseeable standard practise in preserving the sovereignty and ensuring the continuity of states in the event of natural or man-made disasters, and by incorporating the idea into its National Cybersecurity Strategy, Germany would be strengthening its position as a trusted global partner in the digital realm.

The PizzaSeminar will be a hybrid event and participation is possible at BIGS Potsdam (Dianstraße 46, 14482 Potsdam) or via Zoom. The main language of the event is English.
