This report, authored by Clémentine Coujard from the European Commission, was published on May 17, 2022. The report delves into policies, regulations, and certification frameworks surrounding data governance, privacy, and security. It identifies key barriers and drivers within each area. Notably, a lack of trust and liability models stands out as the top barrier, while the increase in user awareness, debates, and cybersecurity risk discussions emerges as the primary driver. Considering these factors, the report underscores the need for further research and innovation. This pertains to developing open standards applicable across diverse stakeholders and pioneering fresh approaches and services for data storage and sharing.
