In a previous blog on General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), I touched on cloud services, data ‘ownership’ and responsibilities, which prompted questions that I thought would be a good topic in this space.

If you are like many around the world, you’re looking into GDPR and finding you’ve got data in public clouds and/or you’re consuming ‘X as a Service’. How do you stand? What do you need to look at? Where does this leave your compliance plans?

Data Location and GDPR

The first thing you need to consider is your cloud suppliers’ stance on privacy and GDPR, which will vary by their location.  Data sovereignty is an important issue today, and will become more important beginning May of 2018.
