Regulating Cloud Computing: Clear Skies Ahead?

Cloud computing - internet-based delivery of IT services – is a growth industry and many Irish businesses are operating as either cloud providers or cloud clients. This conference will discuss regulation of cloud computing.

This conference, presented in association with UCC’s LLM in Intellectual Property and E Law, will discuss regulation of cloud computing, including questions such as the following: • What legal issues need to be considered by businesses in contracting for the provision or use of cloud computing services? • Can an appropriate regulatory balance be struck between cloud provider and cloud client interests? • What are the legal consequences of security breaches regarding data held in the cloud? • What are the implications of storage of data in Europe, the USA and other jurisdictions? • What is the relevance of the EU / US safe harbour arrangements for cloud computing? • What are the implications of the EU’s draft General Data Protection Regulation? • Are concerns about the USA’s Patriot Act and Mutual Legal Assistance Treaties in cloud computing justified? • How are intellectual property law issues dealt with in a cloud environment?
