Germany is reviewing intelligence sharing ties with its Austrian counterparts over fears the sensitive data may be leaked or shared. The move to reassess ties was made by Germany's BfV domestic intelligence agency earlier this week in a written response to Andrej Hunko, a lawmaker from the leftist Die Linke party. The demand comes amid a brewing political storm in Vienna.

It's less a commodity and more akin to a currency. So, what's the value of that currency? And who is best placed to make that valuation? Data in Dollars, Dinar, Dong If we're looking to get a valuation of a business' data, the … [Read more...] about Data as a corporate asset – value, protection and risk
