Lots of clouds: a stormy weather for information privacy?

Thu, Feb. 23 2012 - 11:00

Legal frameworks around the world set many rules to protect the privacy of citizens (and sometimes corporate entities as well). Many principles apply to the treatment of personal data; specific requirements cover transnational flows of different types of data. Cloud computing strategies need to carefully address and integrate the constraints imposed by sometimes conflicting legal regimes.

This workshop will rely on case studies and actual contractual provisions to highlight the core legal principles of data processing in a cloud environment, with a focus on compliance and best practices, in particular regarding data integrity, proper notice and consent, content removal, and liability.

The workshop will be delivered by lawyers active in the field of crossborder data protection and cloud computing strategies, who regularly draft and negotiate complex data protection agreements for clients in Switzerland and abroad.
