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. Buy today and learn how to meet your data protection obligations when using Cloud services.

An expert introduction More than 85% of businesses now take advantage of Cloud computing, but Cloud computing does not sit easily with the DPA. Data Protection and the Cloud addresses that issue, providing an expert introduction to the legal and practical data protection risks involved in using Cloud services. Data Protection and the Cloud highlights the risks an organisation’s use of the Cloud might generate, and offers the kind of remedial measures that might be taken to mitigate those risks. Topics covered include: Protecting the confidentiality, integrity and accessibility of personal dataData protection responsibilitiesThe data controller/data processor relationshipHow to choose Cloud providersCloud security – including two-factor authentication, data classification and segmentationThe increased vulnerability of data in transitThe problem of BYOD (bring your own device)Data transfer abroad, US Safe Harbor and EU legislationRelevant legislation, frameworks and guidance, including: the EU General Data Protection RegulationCloud computing standardsthe international information security standard, ISO 27001the UK Government’s Cyber Essentials scheme and security frameworkCESG’s Cloud security management principlesguidance from the Information Commissioner’s Office and the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Mitigate the security risks Mitigating security risks requires a range of combined measures to be used to provide end-to-end security. Moving to the Cloud does not solve security problems, it just adds another element that must be addressed. Data Protection and the Cloud provides information on how to do so while meeting the DPA’s eight principles.

Data Protection is of extremely high relevance these days. The fast progression technological development leads to a massive digitalisation of data, which makes data much faster and easier accessible. Furthermore, new business models with a technological background have emerged, which was not foreseen not even two decades ago. One of these business models is Cloud Computing. Cloud computing is ubiquitous. For example in the US, small enterprises is said to increase from 37 to nearly 80 percent until 2020. In the UK in 2014 already 75 percent of the SMEs used cloud services in some way, the number for bigger enterprises is probably even higher. Germany, however, falls behind in numbers, only 44 percent of the businesses using Clouds in 2014. These numbers are still speaking for themselves: cloud computing is already of high importance in business and will in all probability be growing in the future, due to the fact that amongst others, it can safeguard expenses and facilitate especially international commerce and trade. Clouds are furthermore not exclusively used professionally. The non-business use of Clouds in Norway for example, amounts for instance to 43 percent, followed by Iceland (39 percent) and Great Britain (38 percent). In the European Union clouds are used on an average of 22 percent. These numbers might be smaller than in fields of business but cannot be expected as a sign for decreasing numbers of use in private cases. Cloud computing will therefore be of particular importance both in professional and private fields in the future. Since Cloud Computing is a model completely dependent on technologies, it is also imperilled to dangers accompanied by technology. Failures of servers or networks are as well possible as the system can be hacked by people. Due to inherent dangers, it is essential to also have security measures available - therefore data protection law is necessary. This book is supposed to serve as a handbook on cloud computing that on one hand should give people who are not very familiar with technology a short and easy understanding of cloud computing itself. On the other hand it is supposed to also explain the main legal bases that are important for cloud computing, including the new data protection rules of the EU. These new rules contain two different instruments of which only one is directly important for cloud computing: the new European Privacy Regulation. The Data Protection Directive for the police and justice sector however does not affect Cloud Computing immediately and will therefore be excluded in this title.

To execute and guarantee the right to privacy and data protection within the European Union (EU), the EU found it necessary to establish a stable, consistent framework for personal data protection and to enforce it in a decisive manner. This book, the most comprehensive guide available to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is the first English edition, updated and expanded, of a bestselling book published in Poland in 2018 by a renowned technology lawyer, expert to the European Commission on cloud computing and to the Article 29 Working Party (now: the European Data Protection Board) on data transfers who in fact contributed ideas to the GDPR. The implications of major innovations of the new system – including the obligation of businesses to consult the GDPR first rather than relevant Member State legislation and the extension of the GDPR to companies located outside of the European Economic Area – are fully analysed for the benefit of lawyers and companies worldwide. Among the specific issues and topics covered are the following: insight into the tricky nature of the GDPR; rules relating to free movement of personal data; legal remedies, liability, administrative sanctions; how to prove compliance with GDPR; direct liability of subcontractors (sub-processors); managing incidents and reporting data breaches; information on when and under what conditions the GDPR rules may apply to non-EU parties; backups and encryption; how to assess risk and adjust security accordingly and document the process; guidelines of the European Data Protection Board; and the GDPR’s digest for obligated parties in a form of a draft data protection policy. The Guide often breaks down GDPR articles into checklists of specific requirements. Of special value are the numerous ready-to-adapt template compliance documents presented in Part II. Because the GDPR contains a set of new obligations and a perspective of severe administrative fines for non-compliance, this guide is an indispensable practical resource for corporate data protection officers, in-house counsel, lawyers in data protection practice, and e-commerce start-ups worldwide.

The second edition of Data Protection goes beyond the traditional topics including deduplication, continuous availability, snapshots, replication, backup and recovery, and explores such additional considerations as legal, privacy, and ethical issues. A new model is presented for understanding and planning the various aspects of data protection, which is essential to developing holistic strategies. The second edition also addresses the Cloud and the growing adoption of software and function as a service, as well as effectively planning over the lifespan of a workload what the best mix of traditional, and cloud native data protection services might be. Virtualization continues to present new challenges to data protection, and the impact of containerization is examined. The book takes a holistic, business-based approach to data protection. It explains how data protection is a mix of proactive and reactive planning, technology and activities that allow for data continuity. There are three essential activities that refer to themselves as data protection; while they all overlap in terms of scope and function, each operate as reasonably self-contained fields with their own specialists and domain nomenclature. These three activities are: Data protection as a storage and recovery activity Data protection as a security activity Data protection as a privacy activity These activities are covered in detail, with a focus on how organizations can use them to leverage their IT investments and optimize costs. The book also explains how data protection is becoming an enabler for new processes around data movement and data processing. This book arms readers with information critical for making decisions on how data can be protected against loss in the cloud, on-premises, or in a mix of the two. It explains the changing face of recovery in a highly virtualized data center and techniques for dealing with big data. Moreover, it presents a model for where data recovery processes can be integrated with IT governance and management in order to achieve the right focus on recoverability across the business.
