Two-day bootcamp explains legal aspects of cloud computing

The legislation landscape of cloud computing does not stay static. Cloud computing that makes use of a hybrid, common or public cloud model creates a new dynamic in the relation between an organisation and its information through the presence of a third party: the cloud provider. It ensures new challenges in the notion of how laws must be applied to very different information management scenarios.

It also brings up practical challenges in how laws apply to the various parties in these different scenarios. Regardless of which computing model one uses, cloud or otherwise, the laws, particularly the ones about collecting, storing and processing data must be taken into account. There are probably national, European and international laws that must be abided by to make sure that what is done is legal.

This two-day bootcamp will address in more detail:

  • ICT contracts, more specifically those for Software as a Service (SaaS)
  • Data and privacy protection
  • Regulatory framework
  • Responsibilities of the various parties
  • Data security

The speakers are experts in their field.
