UK issues Cloud Computing Guidance
In September the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) issued updated guidance on cloud computing. The Guidance makes it clear that organisations remain obliged to ensure data is handled responsibly, even when the data is passed to a cloud provider.
Earlier in the year the French regulator, the CNIL, issued guidance on cloud services, suggesting that data controllers might not have all the information they need to protect data when using the cloud. The guidance goes on to say that contractual clauses might be used to elevate that lack of knowledge.
