As data intermediaries, cloud service providers need to meet their obligations for data protection
In our data-driven and digitalized world, the usage of cloud computing and cloud service providers plays an integral part. Internationally, more than half of corporate data is stored in the cloud – and with an upward trend – end-user spending on cloud services is set to increase year-on-year.
As a result, most end users and companies trust their data to Cloud Service Providers (CSPs). In this context, Cloud Service Providers take the role of Data Controllers and Processors.
What about data protection in the cloud?
Looking at the most common data protection regulations, such as GDPR, CCPA, or Personal Data Protections Acts that are enforced in various countries, the regulations state that while organizations must take the necessary actions to comply with data protection regulations, CSPs also have to provide the appropriate framework.
