Thought for the month

“You cannot have freedom without a rule of law ... and if you don't have it, what you tend to get is corruption and that is death to freedom, it's death to truth, it's death to honour, it's death to democracy.”

Margaret Thatcher, 1 October 1996.

Cold storage

The secure, error and hack free storage of data is becoming a major concern for many organisations. Data storage could be the new Eldorado for Switzerland. Swiss laws on the issue are amongst the most restrictive in the world: personal data is defined as a ‘precious good’  that can under no circumstances be handed over to governments or authorities without authorisation from a judge. The prediction is that within the next 25 years, a majority of the of assets stored in Switzerland will be digital rather than physical. The Gnomes of Zettabyte?
