4 things to look out for in the Data Act
The European Commission’s much-anticipated Data Act, already delayed once, was published on 23 February 2022. A centrepiece of the European Data Strategy, the Data Act is also an important element of the broader tech sovereignty agenda, as it aims to give Europeans more control of their data, create common European data spaces, and ensure the benefits from data generated in Europe benefit European companies, administrations, services etc. As Commissioner Breton stated, when presenting the proposal, this is in line with the DSA, DMA and the AI Act.
The Data Act deals with the following issues:
- B2G data sharing
- B2B data sharing
- Data portability (cloud provider switching)
- International data flows
Our team of experts at DGA Interel has identified the top 4 issues to look out for.
