Regulatory concerns related to cloud computing are rising, particularly those involving data protection, information security and access to data by foreign governments, such as under the U.S. Patriot Act. This trend is leading to a balkanisation of sorts for cloud computing, with an increase in promotion of national solutions such as the “German cloud is a safe cloud.” Such fragmentation could give rise to a digital trade war at a time when global economies are in need of international growth.
The development of a creative new governance model could ward off such a scenario by achieving international standards for privacy, security, transparency, accountability and enforcement, and without unduly burdening commerce, innovation and the free flow of data.
Join this roundtable discussion to hear about the latest EU and international regulatory developments in cloud computing, as well as a new initiative designed to help converge international regulatory principles.
