Accompanying Research Secure Cloud Computing: Legal Challenges and possible solutions (SCC-Jur)


Both firms and private individuals need more and more storage space, computing power and specialist software. Various providers therefore offer cloud computing services inexpensively, and on demand, over the Internet. However, the information technology on offer goes far beyond what is currently regulated by law. The goal of this project was to identify relevant legal problems, analyse them and work out potential solutions.

At the present Cloud Provider and companies can process sensitive data of their customers, when they can provide the necessary legal verification of the data privacy, because there are no regulations and  laws for those services yet. Furthermore criminal and civil-liability questions are not extensively resolved. The acceptance by users and the use of innovative Cloud Solutions seems to be correlating with the legal certainty for all concerned parties.
