Microsoft is committed to complying with the law of the land when it comes to data privacy and will honour data localisation requests from all countries, including India.
“We will have to comply with data laws of various countries. That is mandatory for us. We are already fully compliant with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and will do the same with other countries’ data protection laws,” Ann Johnson, Corporate Vice President, Cybersecurity Solutions Group at Microsoft, told IANS.
As the tech companies demand data to flow freely, Johnson said in order to improve current security and intelligent systems against cybercriminals who are well funded, certain sets of data have to move freely among the countries.
