Sovereignty can be interpreted differently among individuals and countries. But at its core, sovereignty implies authority, independence, self-governance and control over your assets.

In this on-demand webinar, speakers Bill Peterson, engineer senior at Wipfli, and Mac Quig, senior Azure specialist at Microsoft, looked at tribal nations’ sovereignty in the cloud and digital world.

Discussion topics included how sovereignty applies to:

  • Control over digital assets, including who has access to the data and how the data is processed
  • Transparency over operational processes and practices
  • Compliance with local laws and regulations
  • Prevention of unauthorized access by any party
