Staying connected to each other online during the national lockdown has been essential for our health and wellbeing. For many of us, we spend our weeks looking forward to a zoom call with the family or an online quiz with friends. Covid-19 has accelerated our use of social media, but that’s not the only thing. Now, we’re also logging in remotely to our work applications, attending virtual conferences and events, accessing home learning tools for our children, downloading various apps and increasing our shopping online. As a result, an enormous amount of data is being generated. In fact, according to the World Economic Forum, the global volume of data is predicted to double between 2018 and 2022, and then double again between 2022 and 2025.
