U.S. Government Digital Sovereignty: Self-Determination


Adelaide O'Brien

This IDC Perspective presents the U.S. federal government requirements, laws, and presidential executive orders relating to digital sovereignty as it relates to data, technical requirements of cloud and cybersecurity, operational requirements, and assured workloads and resiliency. Digital sovereignty is a relatively new concept driven by data privacy laws, regulatory needs, and sustainability requirements. This document is the first of three U.S. federal government research documents on digital sovereignty and covers digital sovereignty — self-determination. Additional research reports will cover digital sovereignty — self-sufficiency and digital sovereignty — survivability.

"Digital sovereignty is a journey, not a destination — and requires continuous monitoring, auditing, reporting, and upgrades to stay abreast of the latest requirements, says Adelaide O'Brien, research vice president, IDC Government Insights. "Cloud providers and systems integrators are key in helping agencies meet these challenges," she adds.
