With a view to helping managers ask the right questions, Data Protection and the Cloud explains how you can effectively manage the risks associated with the Cloud and meet regulatory requirements. This book discusses:

The controller-processor relationship and what you should pay attention to; How to mitigate security risks in the Cloud to comply with Article 32 of the EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation); How to comply with Chapter V of the GDPR when transferring data to third countries; and The implications of the NIS Directive (Directive on security of network and information systems) for Cloud providers.

One of the most dramatic recent developments in computing has been the rapid adoption of Cloud applications. According to the 2018 Bitglass Cloud Adoption Report, more than 81% of organisations have now adopted the Cloud in some form, compared with only 24% in 2014. And there are no signs that this is slowing down.

The GDPR was enforced on 25 May 2018, superseding the 1995 Data Protection Directive and all local implementations. Bringing data protection into the 21st century, the Regulation expands the rights of individuals, but also introduces new, stricter requirements for organisations. This pocket guide discusses the GDPR requirements relating to Cloud sourcing and the risks involved.

Review quote

This second edition provides a useful background on issues for cloud data privacy. It has been much updated and I liked the clear wording used to describe the Cloud implications of GDPR data subject rights and also storing data in the cloud, particularly in different parts of the world. The chapter on legal and contractual risks of cloud data privacy is extremely helpful. The requirement to ensure cloud security throughout the whole life of the data can be difficult and the advice given is very good. The additional considerations of BYOD are also clearly described. Some of the recommendations may seem obvious but in my experience they often get over looked.

The checklist will also be useful to help ensure the completeness of items to include when establishing cloud arrangements for data that includes personal data.
