SAN DIEGO, CA (Jan. 31, 2023) — Raving and Quick Custom Intelligence (“QCI”) jointly announced that Andrew Cardno would be speaking about the importance of tribal data sovereignty and important considerations as to where the data is housed. These considerations extend from regulatory controls to data transaction taxation risks.
“Today, tribal nations have a choice about where to house their data and this choice has serious sovereignty consequences. For example, housing the data on a state government regulated server exposes the tribal nation to the real risk of the state imposing onerous regulations and the additional risk of the gaming data being exposed to taxation. We are pleased to bring to the table known analytics and software expert Andrew Cardno, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer of Quick Custom Intelligence, to provide our attendees with all of the information they need to make the right decision for their tribe,” said Deana Scott, CEO of Raving.
Andrew Cardno, CTO of QCI, stated “Once lost, sovereignty is hard, if not impossible, to recover. Consider the example where in ten years a state government decides to impose a tax on the use of tribal gaming data. If the data and services are housed in servers on state land, there may be little the tribal nation can to do avoid payment of these taxes. Furthermore, Cardno went on to say, there are over five hundred government agencies that have the right to investigate data and if this data is housed outside of tribal land, the agency may not even have to notify the tribal nation of the investigation.”
