Data protection has been a hot topic for a while now. Not just because organizations collect and produce vast amounts of data which presents a target for hackers, but also because of the increasing number of regulations with stricter requirements than ever before. A new trend has surfaced in recent years as government-issued regulations began putting a heavy emphasis on how to manage personal data storage on a regional scale.
