Countries are increasingly introducing data localization laws, threatening digital globalization and inhibiting cloud computing adoption despite its acknowledged benefits. This multi-disciplinary book analyzes the EU restriction (including the Privacy Shield and General Data Protection Regulation) through a cloud computing lens, covering historical objectives and practical problems, showing why the focus should move from physical data location to effective jurisdiction over those controlling access to intelligible data, and control of access to data through security.

This book constructs both educational and research arguments on various dimensions of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) policy and regulation. There has been a paradigm shift in the ICT industry due to convergence of various technologies, the ubiquity of the Internet, the emergence of app economy and the pervasiveness of social media. These pose policy and regulatory challenges in the areas of industry structure, market power of firms, pricing of products and services, interconnection of networks, radio spectrum management, intellectual property rights, data privacy and security. The common thread throughout the different sections of the book is the massive adoption of digitization by individuals, enterprises, governments and societies and the critical role of associated regulation and policy for its success. The book addresses 13 important questions in the areas of: i) Telecom Regulation including bundling of products and services, interconnection, and radio spectrum; (ii) Internet Regulation including governance of the Internet, Net Neutrality, quality of service, and cyber security; (iii) App Economy Regulation including Over The Top communication and broadcast services, ICT platform intermediation, sharing economy, data protection and privacy; and (iv) Emerging Technology Regulation including Artificial Intelligence and Intellectual Property Rights. The book explains technology and related regulatory concepts in an easy-to-read format and includes brief case studies describing the regulatory approaches from different countries. Specific focus is given to the regulatory landscape in India surrounding these questions and the lessons for similar emerging countries. Written in the form of contemporary questions and answers, this unique book appeals to researchers in ICT policy and regulation, regulators and policymakers, as well as students interested in the subject area. "The book comprehensively covers the current and emerging policy and regulatory issues relating to ICT, especially as applicable to India. Further, it provides a theoretical framework for analysing each regulatory issue along with practical implications. A good reference for researchers, regulators and policy makers." - Dr R.S. Sharma, Chairman, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India. “This book by Professor Sridhar provides an excellent overview of the challenges that the world faces in coping with the dynamic new emerging digital technologies that affect the way we work, play and communicate with each other. As the internet and mobile telephony becomes more ubiquitous and accessible to everyone regardless of socio-economic class, ICT can be used for good or for mischief. The book lays out the issues of regulating global ICT and policies that governments should adopt to enable its productive and positive use.” - Dr G Anand Anandalingam, Ralph J. Tyser Professor of Management Science, Robert H. Smith School of Business, University of Maryland, U.S.A. “Using problem-centric approach successfully opens the complexity of ICT regulation to a wider audience. Through cleverly chosen topical case examples the book links the problems of Indian and international ICT markets.” - Dr Hämmäinen Heikki, Professor, Department of Communications and Networking, Aalto University, Finland. “Prof Sridhar is a Thought Leader in the Telecom space and I have enjoyed my interaction with him over the years. This book is an excellent compendium looking at the main regulations and policies with reference to the ICT sector. It serves as a ready reckoner for new entrants and professionals alike, providing global and local perspectives on topics that impact the growing Digital Economy.” - P Balaji, Chief Regulatory and Corporate Affairs Officer, Vodafone Idea Limited, India “Emerging ICT Policies and Regulations: Roadmap to Digital Economies is a must read for understanding essential questions regarding ICT Policy and Regulation as digitization develops locally and globally. With useful information on the case of India (and other countries), the book provides a clear, comprehensive, and cogent capture of relevant concepts and practices as well as emerging challenges. Powerful illustrations make concrete the nuance of regulatory approaches and provide added value for the reader.” - Dr. Nanette S. Levinson, Professor, Internet Governance Lab, School of International Service, American University, USA, “Reference books are usually an important source of information but they are often not very readable. I am glad to say that Prof. Sridhar has managed to produce a very-well written account of ICT regulation and policies with a focus on India, and the result is a comprehensive and interesting volume with a number of very useful chapters; many of them easily digested on their own. The book is highly recommended for members of the internet and telecommunications industries, regulators and researchers.” - Dr Jairo Gutierrez, Professor and Deputy Head, Engineering Computer and Mathematical Sciences, Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand. “Professor Sridhar's book provides the required regulatory theory and framework on 13 most important issues of the digital economy and provides guidance for setting policies and rules. A comprehensive reference for students and practitioners in the area of ICT regulation.” - Dr S Sadagopan, Director and Professor, International Institute of Information Technology Bangalore, India "Emerging ICT Policies and Regulations puts together invaluable and timely research in mapping and analysing the various issues faced by digital economy in India. Prof Sridhar has captured the most pressing issues in it, pertaining to Competition Law and Policy, Intellectual Property Rights, net neutrality, data privacy, regulating OTT services etc., not just comprehensively, but in a reader friendly way. A must read for anyone wanting to get insights on the numerous challenges involved in optimally regulating ICT driven services". - Pradeep S Mehta, Secretary General, Consumer Unity & Trust Society International, India “The Book is a very exhaustive and excellent collection of contemporary issues & challenges on Policy & Regulation that the Digital Economy is likely to grapple with in the coming years. The research on each of these issues which precedes the suggested outcome ( by the author ) is very comprehensive and includes detailed analysis of the pros and cons, global best practices in the area of Policy Regulation in other Regimes , how the Indian context differs from the others and therefore , how it could possibly be addressed. " - TV Ramachandran, President, Broadband India Forum, India “Whether it is spectrum auction or license fee; net neutrality or interconnection; cybersecurity or privacy; Sridhar peels off layers and presents underlying tensions within the fast-paced technological revolution and rather slow evolution of policy & regulation.” - Deepak Maheshwari, Former Secretary - ISP Association of India, Co-Founder - National Internet eXchange of India, Former Chair - IEEE Internet Initiative, India. “An encyclopedic mapping of regulatory challenges and solutions for the sector by the always insightful Prof. Sridhar. Through a single book, he provides an accessible guide to a plurality of regulations impacting the various layers of the OSI model.” - Sunil Abraham, Executive Director, Centre for Internet & Society, India

The Internet ecosystem is held together by a surprisingly intangible glue — trust. To meet its full potential, users need to trust that the Internet works reliably and efficiently when providing them with the information they are seeking, while also being secure, private and safe. When trust in the Internet wanes, the network’s stock of “digital social capital” falls and users begin to alter their online behaviour. These often subtle changes in behaviour tend to be collectively highly maladaptive, hindering the economic, developmental and innovative potential of the globe-spanning network of networks. Look Who’s Watching: Surveillance, Treachery and Trust Online confirms in vivid detail that the trust placed by users in the Internet is increasingly misplaced. Edward Snowden’s revelations that the United States National Security Agency and other government agencies are spying on Internet users, the proliferation of cybercrime and the growing commodification of user data and regulatory changes — which threaten to fragment the system — are all rapidly eroding the confidence users have in the Internet ecosystem. Based on a combination of illustrative anecdotal evidence and analysis of new survey data, Look Who’s Watching clearly demonstrates why trust matters, how it is being eroded and how, with care and deliberate policy action, the essential glue of the Internet can be restored.

Data Sovereignty and Enterprise Data Management

Data sovereignty refers to privacy legislation governing information that is subject to the laws of the country where the information is located or stored. Data sovereignty impacts the protection of data and is affected by governmental regulations for data privacy, data storage, data processing, and data transfer across international borders. The European Union's General Data Protection Regulation is a recent example of a data sovereignty law. Other examples include Australia's Privacy Act, Canada's Anti-Spam Law, the People's Republic of China's Cybersecurity Law, and Russia's Personal Data Localization law. Data sovereignty laws are emerging as a key impediment to cloud-based storage of data. These laws also have an impact when information is created in one country but then is moved to another country for storage, analytics, or processing. Data sovereignty is thus becoming increasingly important to multinationals with business operations, customers, and employees in several countries. It is crucial for organizations to be able to accurately identify who has control and access to their data-wherever it is located. As with all enacted regulations, compliance requires a sound data governance program with effective enterprise data management. Data governance is the formulation of policy to optimize, secure, and leverage information as an enterprise asset by aligning the objectives of multiple functions. Enterprise data management refers to an organization's ability to precisely define, easily integrate, and effectively retrieve data for both internal applications and external communication. This book, geared toward business users, outlines 16 core steps to operationalize a data governance program geared to data sovereignty compliance. Successful data sovereignty requires collaboration across the organization, including among those responsible for legal, risk, compliance, information technology, and enterprise data management. The amalgamation of skills and technology within the organization will support the operationalization. As organizations extend the reach of their operations and customer base and look to leverage the cloud for computing, data distribution, and application hosting, they must understand the ramifications their business and IT decisions could have with respect to data sovereignty laws. With the concepts outlined in this book, organizations will be equipped to move forward to address the challenges of data sovereignty.
