The Bahamas Advantage. Data Protection Framework and best-in-class cloud infrastructure by Cloud Carib

The Bahamas – Strong Data Protection Framework

Importance of Data Jurisdiction

Data jurisdiction is becoming an increasingly important issue for global enterprises using cloud services, as data protection laws of their service provider jurisdiction govern the protection and access to data. The USA Patriot Act, as an example, entitles authorities to access data stored by non-US persons on US servers. In response to these laws, many companies are specifically opting to host their sensitive data outside the United States.

Bahamas Data Protection Act

In The Bahamas where Cloud Carib is headquartered, access to data is governed by the Data Protection Act, which provides a statutory framework for the collection, use and disclosure of personal information largely based upon OECD’s Privacy Guidelines. These guidelines were the first international statement of the core information privacy principles and have proven highly influential over the past 30 years, serving as the basis for national and international privacy instruments.

Feitian Partnership

To further reinforce its commitment to data security, Cloud Carib entered in an agreement with Feitian Technologies, a leading software security company, specializing in authentication and encryption solutions. Based in Beijing and serving a global clientele, Feitian has been awarded 500 worldwide patents and continues to push the edge of digital security technology and authentication systems by extending cross-platform hardware solutions for mobile devices, the main modern target for cyber-attacks.

This new partnership will enable Cloud Carib to implement additional security features in its offerings, such as 2-factor authentication token for Citrix cloud solutions, and dongle systems for software developers seeking to secure their digital assets.
