Cloud services – legal issues and case-law
The aim of the training is to provide knowledge of the dangers and risks of using cloud services and how to mitigate them. The focus of the training is on real-life legal problems that arise when consuming cloud services (as a client) and providing cloud services (as a service provider). The training participant can distinguish the important from unimportant and navigate in the most relevant legal issues.
The use of cloud services and storing data in the cloud has become increasingly popular and has become essential for many companies’ data management. While cloud technologies are valued for their convenience, speed, performance, and flexibility, attention must be paid to several important factors when using cloud services. What are the dangers of storing data in the cloud? Why and what security measures must be implemented when using cloud services? Who is responsible for providing high-quality and proper service? What should be taken into account regarding data protection and GDPR? What is the case law?
