It is becoming increasingly common to hear about “digital sovereignty”. Have you ever thought about it?


What does digital sovereignty mean?

  1. Digital sovereignty means that I have the possibility to use digital media (smartphones, tablets, internet, platforms, etc.) in a self-determined and free way and that I feel confident in dealing with all media formats.

    This is certainly an aspect of digital sovereignty, but is it enough?

  2. Digital sovereignty means that politicians are familiar with digitalisation.

    It would be absolutely desirable for politicians to be digitally fit inside, but that is not the meaning of digital sovereignty.

  3. Digital sovereignty means that I always have full control over where my data is stored, how it is backed up and who has access to it.

    Absolutely correct! You should have complete sovereignty over your data – so you can act safely and are digitally sovereign.
