On 25 January in Brussels, EU Justice Commissioner Viviane Reding announced the Proposal for an EU Regulation on Data Protection which will have a very significant impact on cloud computing providers and users, and which includes fines of up to 2% of annual worldwide turnover for violations of the requirements set out in the Regulation. In the meantime, it has been announced that the first tranche of G-Cloud, the UK’s public sector cloud, would be launched in March.
