Cloud computing has become an essential element of the IT sourcing strategy for many companies.
IT, legal and procurement staff in these companies are therefore faced with the fact that comprehensive know-how in many areas — not only in technology — is now necessary if cloud services are to be used responsibly, economically and in a way that is legally compliant with the locally applicable regulation frameworks.
The strategically planned introduction and use of cloud services inevitably requires the topic of data protection to be taken into consideration from the very beginning. For with the use of cloud services, data — and in particular personal data — are transmitted to third parties for processing.

With it, the EU is sending a clear and globally recognisable signal showing how a society can react to quickly developing technical possibilities and their consequences for the people within it. The resulting challenges for providers and users of modern IT services alike should not be underestimated, and to prepare for these challenges ahead of time is a must.
