The Privacy & Security Implications of Cloud Computing
Cloud Computing and its privacy and security implications are at the forefront of news media debate around the world. However, only regulators from developed countries are discussing its privacy and security policy implications. In 2008-2009, the US Federal Trade Commission and The Ontario Privacy Commissioner have discussed the matter. The Council of Europe raised the question of cloud computing, jurisdiction and international law enforcement at its Octopus conference in March 2009. The OECD will discuss the subject in October 2009. Civil Society has advocated for strong data protection laws and heightened enforcement, business interests dispute that regulation is necessary while law enforcement agencies highlight the challenges for investigating cybercrime and securing electronic evidence when the data is stored in the cloud. Those services are being used all over the world. However, there is a lack of understanding of the issue and a lack of participation by stakeholders from developing countries in this debate.
This workshop will explain the definition and various types of cloud computing services, and focus the policy debate on privacy and security risks of those services at user level. The objective is to understand how personal data is managed and processed, and to develop effective policy frameworks so that users can exercise control over their own personal data when that data is stored and processed in the cloud. We will also discussed how the current system of mutual legal assistance and jurisdiction may work for law enforcement agencies when the data is stored in the cloud, and attempt to identify the policy implications of cloud computing on security, privacy and law enforcement. This workshop will wrap up the various discussions held in different venues during 2009.
