International Cloud Security and Data Privacy Report
Published: May 31, 2016 Content info: 12 Pages

This report provides an essential foundation for multinational companies looking to buy cloud services by outlining the regulations and standards that affect them when deploying cloud services internationally.

When companies deploy cloud service that hold personal information about individuals, they need to adhere to strict laws about protecting this data. The report explains the overall structure of data privacy legislation that applies internationally. It then outlines the various regulations in Europe and the USA and the issues arising with using cloud services across national boundaries.

As multinational companies no doubt want to outsource to cloud service providers based outside their own countries the report outlines what is involved in keeping trans-border data flows legal.

In Europe data privacy legislation is soon to be replaced by a new legislative instrument, the GDPR, and the report lists the items to consider when preparing for the introduction of the GDPR.

Knowing the various international standards and what they potentially cover will help with writing RFPs for cloud services and comparing the security capabilities of cloud service providers.

This report will help multinational companies deploying cloud services across national boundaries. It will save them time, and the potential consequences of omitting important factors, as they source cloud services.
