Compliance with legal and sectoral regulations

Cloud Computing is one of the fastest-growing IT areas, due to the series of benefits it brings, such as scalability, flexibility or simplified IT environment management. Migration to cloud, though, means a number of legal and technological challenges.

The number of cases when both EU and local regulations include cloud services has been growing; therefore, ensuring compliance of cloud-based solutions is more important than ever before. Legal and regulatory requirements have evolved along with cyberattack vectors and their increasingly refined nature. Therefore, adopting a pro-active approach and adjusting to meet the regulation is a must, as this may both protect the organization not only from adverse effects of non-compliance, but also it measurably improves organizations security level.  

What regulatory issues should be considered?

Key legal and regulatory issues to be considered by each entity that wants to use cloud services include security of data processed in the cloud. Depending on the manner of using the cloud, entities must take care of such aspects as compliance with GDPR, protecting business secrets of both the user and its client, and intellectual property rights. Those operating in regulated sectors must meet much stricter requirements.

End-to-end approach

Therefore, when deciding to introduce a cloud computing solution, an enterprise should put compliance first on the list of its priorities. What we need, though, is a comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach including in particular legal and technological aspects. This will allow developing effective internal procedures corresponding to the used technologies and designed architecture, thus providing strong foundation for the organizational security.
