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?
